I turned around to see Parker Haddaway smiling at me, and I laughed out loud because (1) Parker Haddaway didn’t smile, ever, and (2) Parker Haddaway only spoke to people if they spoke to her first, and only to tell them she was not interested in speaking with them any further and would they kindly go to hell, and (3) I laugh when I’m terrified.

When you meet her you’ll know it because you feel whole, for the first time, and it’s the best damn feeling in the world.”
