I took Pilgrim over to Barnes & Nobles the other day to get a shot next to the Vonnegut books. Yeah, I got some stares. I’ve never been the kind of person that wants to be the center of attention. This whole photographing Pilgrim around the city is going to be a lesson in dealing with people staring at me. There’s just no hiding a 2ft alien.
This time at B&N I was with my daughter whom I tricked into carrying Pilgrim around instead of me. People I assume imagined it was some weird kid’s project. Pilgrim was a big hit in the children’s book section. It seems every kid under the age of three wanted to come up and touch Pilgrim. If the parent’s didn’t mind, then I went ahead and let them.
I think Pilgrim would fit well enough in a yoga bag so I’m going to try and purchase one this weekend. It should make transporting Pilgrim around a bit less conspicuous.
