serious Oracle

(no subject)

Nick, Jeff and I were chatting yesterday evening. The subject of "The first time I met Jeff..." came up.

Here's my story: he was doing construction on the petting zoo two (?) years ago. Alen introduced me to him, saying "This is Kelly. She's our female jouster." To which Jeff replied. "I don't know what I think about that."

"It doesn't matter," I smiled. "I'm doing the show." Granted, inside I was shaking. What the hell? I didn't even know this guy. What's wrong with a "Nice to meet you"?

Anyway, I reminded Jeff of this meeting. "I remember that," he said. "I remember that you were so gracious, it was disarming." After a moment, he added, "Wow. Did you look at me and just see a huge penis?"

Funny, how far we've come. Later still, he said, "I would joust you any day of the week. You know that."

Makes me feel really good.
