While I was standing in line for David Duchovny, a group of people came over to the area with film cameras and asked if anyone would be willing to answer a few questions about The X-Files. I didn’t hesitate and asked my husband to hold my stuff (the equivalent of “Hold my beer.”) while I went over and participated.
My husband and daughter couldn’t believe what they were seeing. I am not a participator or a joiner and I don’t ever allow myself to be filmed especially by total strangers and especially while outing my obsession. I did that without even thinking about it. I answered questions and went back to my family and looked at them and smiled and said, “Do you like this new me? I do stuff now.” They do. They like me very much. Sometimes bravery is saying yes.
If you enjoyed this episode and want to dig deeper into each story, my husband Rob and I do an exclusive companion podcast on my Patreon page. We give further background into the story and include the spouse’s perspective. Each one of these episodes averages 45 minutes to an hour. Find the link below.
I also share different content across my social media channels and at my blog on the website.
