OF SHOPPING, COMMERCIALS AND AAM
… and I noticed we were moving kind of quickly through the restaurant.
I’m kind of a klutz, so – especially in crowded places with narrow spaces, like classrooms or restaurants – I have to move slowly and really carefully or I’d crash into something or somebody, and it’d be really embarrassing.
And David was walking so fast.
I wanted to keep up with him but when I bumped into this little girl’s chair, and the family at that table stared at me, I had no choice but to slow down.
I fell about ten feet back, and I actually panicked because I was afraid that David and Ray would walk off without me.
But then I made it to the front of the restaurant, and saw David standing there at the entrance, waiting patiently for me, gentle smile and all.
Um, OK, can I die now?!
“Um… David?” I called, and I felt really nervous all over again because I just wasn’t used to calling him by name, yet.
And David went zooming past me, smiling excitedly and singing randomly again, “That’s not my name! That’s not my name…!”
David slowed down considerably, and I almost exhaled loudly in relief. My heart was pounding loudly in my ears from the run and the back of my neck had started to sweat again. Sheesh, I was that wiped out.
Next time, David’s people should really put it in the Terms & Conditions that the fan who wishes to spend the day shopping with David must be an athletic person, more specifically a fast runner.
Otherwise they’d end up like me. Dang it.
The elevators door slid open with a soft ‘ding!’
Everyone looked around at David – except me; I’d lowered my eyes to the floor (it’s a weird habit, can’t explain it, sorry) – waiting for him to go in first.
… he didn’t.
He just stood there, like he was waiting for something else to happen first.
Confused, I glanced up at him.
… and I saw that he was looking back at me, expectantly.
Again, I was thinking bewilderedly, huh? What…?
What’s going on? What did I do…?
Then it hit me.
David was being the perfect gentleman again and waiting for me to go in first.
