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.

I first met Jeff back in 1995. It was my first year at the Faire,and I was playing the Village Idiot (FULL CIRCLE, BABY!). Back then, the villagers all met in the same room for rehearsals. Robin Hood Band, Guards and Court rehearsed seperately. So, while we were rehearsing T&P, Dan O'Driscoll stood in for the Sheriff. The first time I got to interact with Jeff as the Sheriff, it was during T&P opening weekend. I brought up my brother and accused him of impersonating me. The punishment? Take him out back and bugger him.
