Hi Jenny,

My name is Megan, I’m a senior at Michigan State. I am a huge fan of your work. I have the San Francisco poster and any time a friend moves to a big city, I buy them the respective poster—you’re great!

This is a big shot in the dark, but I’m going to be in Chicago tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon. I’m doing a year-long blogging project called 52 Cups of Coffee ( Every week for a year, I’m having coffee with someone new and blogging about the experience.

Would you have 30 minutes to grab coffee tomorrow, any place that is convenient for you.

I realize it’s late notice, but I figured it was worth it to ask. Whether you say yes or no, I’ll still be a fan. But I hope you say yes.

Hi Megan, Thanks for being a fan and for thinking of me for your project! I’d be happy to have a cup of coffee with you tomorrow. I actually prefer things to be last minute, so that’s no problem at all, ha ha.

When will you be in town? What time is good for you?
