Let's go ahead and just boil it down to the highlights...
I won not 5 but 6 straight games of Solitaire, without using the hint button once.
Mark Solomon made mention of his insurance two separate times...really mastering the technique of segueing.
Dennis Stewart coined the term "Forum Groupies."
Kendal Hartley said he likes to listen more than talk. smooth.
John DeMattia and Amir Omar had an interesting exchange regarding bringing small business/retail to Richardson. Worth hunting down the video to see IMO.
Karl V. talked about how he retired a while back to become a public servant, which I thought was kinda awkward as it only highlighted his losing streak.
Bobby T. fumbled over his words saying "There's still a lot of good in the pipework...er, pipeline," which made me smile.
Diana Claussen's phone rang not once but twice. The second time she answered, and proceeded to have a brief conversation.
However, John DeMattia still topped that to become the king of the Mark Twain forum awkward moment, when he went on a tangent about how Richardson could never have it's own "state park" because we just didn't have the space for it....when asked about the possibility of a "sKate park" in Richardson. Mishearing the question was not what made it awkward, it was more the fact that he went on and on answering it with a straight face....and on a more personal note, as someone who makes a habit out of asking a lot of stupid questions, I really like the fact that John D. won't make fun of me, but rather take them (if anything too) seriously.
Anyway that was about it. Within 24 hours half my house had contracted the ebola virus. So if you see me at the LWV forum tonight, just stand back and let me play Solitaire in peace, as I'm obviously a carrier. for real. like that monkey in Outbreak.
