I got to meet Stephen King when he came to UVM. I was working for Dining Services at the time and working a Vermont vs Maine Girls Basketball game concessions. Someone was standing in front of me with their apple and money. I reached out took his money, looked up and about peed my pants! It was him, the God of scary books, my idol, Stephen King. I own EVERY book, movie, short story he ever wrote. I said to him “omg your Stephen King!” (like he didn’t know that), and asked if I could shake his hand. He grinned and said yes. As he walked away, I yelled “Wait! Can I shake your hand once more!!?” and he let me. What a guy. 2nd time we met was at a private dinner- he signed my copy of ‘The Stand’ and wrote: “I love you too, Love Stephen King” (my parents bought me the book and Dad wrote “We love you” inside).
