Pat and Carolyn Skype with Oprah

I am very lucky to be able to say that I did something that very few other people in the world can say they have done, too. I had direct contact with Oprah Winfrey.

In November 2009 my best friend, Carolyn, and I skyped with Oprah in an online Webcast about her book club selection Say You're One of Them by Uwem Akpan.

Fittingly, we discussed the chapter about best friends and talked for a few minutes with the Big O and Mr. Akpan. Oprah even called us cute! I still can't believe it.

The embeddable version of the Webcast is no longer available, but you can watch it on to see the proof! We pop up around 1:40.

We'll miss you, Oprah!
