Strange encounter of the blog kind

Went for a typical Kerala Christian engagement lunch. A large group of people all dressed up. While making polite conversation a pretty young thing comes up and asks about my daughter-in-law. I smile, "How..." "I read her blog--and yours". I am zapped, so zapped that I did not ask her name or where she lives. I did ask what her nom de plume might be, which she told me but I didn't quite catch.
So, pretty young woman, if you are reading this, sorry I seemed so lost and it was nice to meet you.

El, well me being me, I guess I was a bit embarassed.
B's nook, thanks and see you too.
O, I sent you a mail.
Esbee, that would be fun. Never know, on our next visit to the US... :-)

Wow, that is so cool that you met a fan in person. It would be a little disorienting at first, an "other place in time" kind of thing but it's all good.
