Showalter Explains It All

LB: You can give me a fake answer then.

MS: Okay. If they do another Lonesome Dove then I would like to be in that.

LB: Oh yeah, they just did Comanche Moon, that's the last one, I think.

MS: Yeah, but if they did another one after that. I would like to be in that. What's your name again?

LB: Why? Are you Googling me?

MS: Yeah.

LB: Oh, okay.

MS: Are you on Myspace? What's your name on Myspace?

LB: I did make a friend request.

MS: Of me?

LB: Yeah.

MS: Did I accept your request?

LB: No.

MS: Really?

LB: Um, yeah.

MS: Oh. Did you just do that?

LB: No.

MS: It says you are 49.

LB: Yeah, I'm not. Is that why you didn't accept my friend request?

MS: How old are you?

LB: 32. How old are you?

MS: 37.

LB: Anyway... Hello?

The call gets cut off. After a few back and forth phone calls, since we are both in Brooklyn, we decided to meet up the next day and finish the interview. We meet for our coffee date on the corner of Flatbush and Atlantic. He already has coffee in his hand. We head to the coffee shop he just came from so that he doesn't have to feel weird walking into a coffee shop with coffee from somewhere else. I don't ask whether he feels weird meeting for coffee with coffee in hand. Since it is unseasonably warm and the coffee shop is crowded, we sit in the backyard.

MS: That is a really great sweater.

LB: Oh, thanks!

MS: Where did you get it?

LB: Oh, I don't know. Some vintage store? I think. It's handmade.

MS: No, it's not.

LB: Really? I always thought it was.

MS: What size is it?

LB: Um, my size but a bit bigger.

MS: Can I buy it?

LB: My sweater? I'm wearing it.

MS: What size is it?

LB: I don't know. It doesn't have a tag, because it's handmade.

MS: I really doubt that.

He comes over and checks the back of my sweater. There's no tag.

MS: Everything I am wearing is from J. Crew. Literally everything I am wearing. The socks, the pants, the underwear, the shirts. Both shirts. Everything. But you would never know it, would you?

LB: Um, no. Are you sponsored by them?
