As most of you probably remember, I had somewhat of a “run-in” with a fairly well known lady a couple of years ago at a movie expo. It was a pretty rad experience for me, since I’ve considered myself somewhat of a fan of hers. Ever since that video where she used the baby oil she’s been pretty close to the top of my list.
Anyway, I think it’s worth mentioning that I ran into her again, though this time it wasn’t such a collision as just a “seeing her in public” episode. But wait – let me back up a little. I first ‘ran into her’ in March or April of 2005. Then I saw her again at an adult expo of some sort where a buddy and I went just to see her. We heard she’d be in town, blah blah blah, went and said hi and got a snap with her. Didn’t really have time to talk. But this was about three weeks after the first time I met her.
So back to the current narrative. I saw her at a fancy restaurant here in Dallas. What the eff is she doing in Dallas, you might ask? Well I did ask her. I won’t share with you why she was here because it doesn’t further your perception that I might actually have a chance with her. But there I was, eating at Three Forks when she comes waltzing in with her uh – brother. Yeah. After they’d ordered their drinks, he got up to go to the men’s room, so I slipped into his chair while she was gazing at the menu. She looked up and did almost a double-take and smiled broadly. And here’s the cool part: she remembered my name. Hell yes!
So she says, “Oh my God, hey Space! What are you doing here?” Meh. I won’t bore you with the details of the conversation, but we talked for several minutes before dipsh– her brother finally got back. I excused myself and told her I’d get in touch. Because remember, she gave me her phone number way back when. Haw!
So that’s how it happened. I had a great dinner with a damn concrete smile on my face for the rest of the night. I think I even saw a twinkle in her eye when she said hello. You can be the judge of that – just look at the picture.
