    NEW--If you stop me on the street and either you or I have a writing utensil, I will autograph anything on your person, including your person with some exceptions. Chiefly, I will avoid the area above mid-thigh to your belly button at all cost. Most everything else is game (nothing soiled). Sorry... folks get weird, so I had to put that. I will sign paper, a copy of any of my books, a copy of a book I did not write, your purse, the lucky troll you bring to bingo. You name it.
