...hello NeilFred...this is Gillian who went to high school with you...a funny thing happened tonight! Perhaps this is just like every night of your life BUT. Recently I spoke to Zoe, who said the best thing in Portland was juggling at Reed, and I live in Portland now, and another friend of mine is a Reed juggler too. So I went with him to the Renegade show tonight, and I spotted you, and said, "I think that's someone I went to high school with. Who is that purple guy?"
My juggling friend: "Fred?!?!?!?!"
Me: "Yeah! It is him! He looks exactly the same!"
My friend: "You went to school with NeilFred?!?!?!?!" (as if I'd said that the Virgin Mary drove my carpool)
Anyway, I didn't stop to talk to you because I had to sneak out and go to work early in the morning (on Saturday!), but it was cool to see you perform. I also may have increased your cred slightly by verifying that yes, you were always like that.
