In all seriousness, though, and a sentimental fool, I'm not, you two were the highlight of my weekend. I left as quickly as I showed up, but I had my suspicions about you and they were confirmed at the convention. Thanks to the both of you (Mostly Adam, though) for showing up. I could go on and on about how an UN-feeling sort of guy like me could be "touched" by the way you and Adam carried on, but to see the smile on his face when your conversation drifted towards the things guys like to talk about was priceless. Any time you mentioned the potential goings on upstairs behind closed doors and the way his eyes lit up was a gem to behold. Man! It was awe-inspiring. What a presence of mind the lad has! Yeah, and Adam too... just kidding...
I left Saturday evening with joy in my heart, but woke up Sunday, depressed, with the realization that I had just laid eyes on 50 or 60 people who suffer from this same hell that I do, and they were all in the same room, at the same time. What a weekend. I could die tonight, penniless, but how much richer I have become, in just a couple of days.
