I was recently left a signed Truman Capote book with the directions to give it to someone who I loved and was very important to me. It all fell into place that the person I wanted to give it to loves the author.
I gave Matty the book and he was literally the loveliest person about it. He didn’t want to take it at first but then be accepted why I wanted him to have it. He kept hugging me and he was so genuine. We talked for about 5/10 minutes and it was amazing. My friend took 26 pictures of the entire event, but here are a few. He also took a letter I wrote and said I had given him something so important and something he’d cherish, so he’d make sure he read it. Plus he wrote out some of the lyrics for my tattoo. He had to sing out the lyrics, bless him, cause he couldn’t remember the way the lyrics went. It was an amazing experience.
‘I’ve got you a book!’ ‘Truman Capote’ ‘And it signed’ ‘Oh my god, darling, by who?’ ‘…truman capote’
(apologies for my diar appearance!)
