Secretly awesome.

You guys know about Secret Agent L, right? Pittsburgh’s anonymous do-gooder who has been spreading random acts of day-brightening all around the city for close to a year now.

She is the subject of a Pittsburgh Magazine article this month, and she is revealing her identity on July 24 at a reveal event at Firehouse Lounge, benefiting charity.

Last week, Wear Pittsburgh unveiled a new design in conjunction with Secret Agent L:

The best thing about this shirt is that I don’t need to worry about my wardrobe for the reveal event. Jeans, shirt, strappy heels, done.

Also, Secret Agent L, I’ve been waiting a long time for my requested act of day-brightening. You know, finding ANY self-united husband or a half-dozen terrified pigeons tied to the hood of my car, and in either case, with a little note that says, “Do what you will.”

    1. You’re gonna look SO HAWT in that t-shirt, girl. Holy moly.

    2. I’m doing a dance of joy right now for being declared an “Awesome Burgher” by the one-and-only You. *happy dance* *uncoordinated/awkward jig* *high five*

    3. My assistant has sent out numerous requests to self-united husbands requesting their availability for “Good Times with Local Pittsburgh Woman.” No responses yet. Today I will fire my assistant and take matters into my own secret agent-y hands.

    3a. Pigeons know better than to come near me.

    4. Did I mention that you’re gonna look H-O-T-T in that t-shirt? (a.k.a. You’re going to upstage me. But that’s okay. This time.)

    5. *high-five*

    My guess: Sally Wiggin. S.A.L.

    Saw you two together at Las Velas last weekend with, maybe, two sisters?? Clouds of love billowing, almost offsetting the lack of A.C. — or maybe that was why it was so warm — all the love!!

    What is a “reveal event”? Is that like a party? “Event” doesn’t tell me a damn thing. It’s a buzzword that has gotten completely out of hand to where stores don’t have sales anymore, they have “sales events,” and car dealers have “tent events” and God help me, back at Easter somebody held an “Easter egg event.”

    I’m having an event. Would you like to come to my event? It’ll be a really nice event. But if you want to know what my event is, you’ll just have to come, eventually. Here’s a hint, though: ritual sacrifice. Doesn’t that sound like a great event?

    I’ll follow that question with what’s a ‘self-united husband’? Checked the lexicon page, twasn’t there.
