After my massage at Trilogy Spa I wanted tea. There was a man sitting right next to the tea dispenser busy texting on his IPad. Next to him was an entire empty, clear booth.
Pretending I was a truck, I backed my ass into the tiny space between him and the tea do-dads.
He moved over just a little bit so I could awkwardly squeeze in and sit so close to him I could feel him breathing.
Noticing his wild hair and strange sunglasses I had to ask…..
Me: “Do you work here?”
Him: “No I’m getting a treatment…”
Me: “Where is your robe?!”
Him: “Oh! They did this to me last time. I’ll just go in there, drop my clothes and get naked!”
We chatted for several minutes before I had to ask, “What do you do for work?”
Him: “I’m a musician.”
Me: “That’s fun!! What do you play?”
Him: “Well…I don’t play anything. I produce music.”
He laughed and we talked so more about Vegas, the scene and how he’d played there just recently.
And then (since I was practically sitting on top of him) I leaned in and poked my finger through the non-existent glass of his sunglasses and said, “Um….do you know there is no glass in your sunglasses?”
Him: (laughing) “Ha! Yeah! I’ve been wearing these for 5 years. They are the new style.”
The practical me stared at him a few minutes longer trying to understand why sunglasses w/o actual glasses were in style. I really didn’t see the point. But I understood styles have their own life when someone starts it.
Him: “Do you know that song, “I’m sexy and I know it?”
Me: “Yes! I love that song, my son made up his own video version of it!”
Him: “I wrote that song!”
Me: “No way…that’s such a great song!”
Him: “Actually I sing that song too!”
Me: “Oh….you are that guy?”
Now I got it. I felt like an idiot but I just don’t have that celebrity-radar. Ever. The stories I can cite here would have been looking even more stupid and embarrassed so I won’t share. But I will say Mr. Stefan Gordy from LMFAO is an amazingly talented self-made great guy. I love his story of success and so much I enjoyed meeting him and getting to know him and his girlfriend!
But I won’t soon forget that I was naked (under my robe) next to him….on a bench.
He did give me several of his glasses and I have been wearing them proud (yes, no glass in the glasses!) for my live comedy shows!
