I have a confession to make. When I was a kid, I was a Trekkie.
Okay, both my brother and I were Trekkies.
Give us the title of any episode, and we could rattle off the plot summary from memory.
We had a wide assortment of Star Trek paraphernalia including the shirts, phasers, communicators, tricorders – you name it.
And my brother had models of the Enterprise and the shuttle craft, a Romulan ship and the Klingon bird of prey.
When we were in middle school, William Shatner came to the Syracuse Civic Center and we begged our parents to go see him.
He was boring as hell and didn’t show outtakes and bloopers from Star Trek like they said he was going to.
But at one point, he opened it up to questions and a woman stood up to reveal she was wearing a Star Trek-themed outfit she had sewn herself.
Before Shatner could stop her, she rushed the stage like a teenager at a Beatles concert.
Unlike my brother and I — who were kids — this was a grown woman.
It was at that moment that I realized there were Trekkies and then there were crazy-ass Trekkies who go out in public wearing a flannel outfit covered in little Star Ship Enterprises.
Well, this lady at Hillary’s book signing reminds me of that Trekkie.
Oh, honey. No!
Gives a whole new meaning to the term “dust jacket,” doesn’t it?
You could wear anything to meet your idol and you chose that?!
I’m cringing on the outside.
