This is far more amusing in context
What’s funny is they showed up to get the background footage during one of the presentations, so there wasn’t anyone visiting the tables. The person I’m talking to is the event organizer/founder/matriarch, and the conversation we’re having went like this:
Me: They just turned the camera this way.
Melissa: No! Did they? No, don’t look! Tell me about your book!
Me: You should read it.
Melissa: I did.
Me: It’s really funny. Stop that you’re freaking out.
Melissa: omigodomigod are they still filming?
