…and he didn’t even kill me.

Last night I had the privilege of having dinner with Crouton Boy. (You may also know him from Dad Centric or Draft Day Suit, am I forgetting any?) We had a really good time. It is amazing how comfortable you can be with a complete stranger just because you read their blog everyday.

If you like Cheeky’s Hideaway you would love Crouton Boy, and yes I am just going to keep calling him that because even though I (and probably most of you) know his real name, I don’t know what the etiquette is on using it, so just suck it up.

I don’t know what happened in this picture. We’re really both much thinner in person.

We talked about music and kids and football (and fantasy football) and you guys. At some point we actually wondered if it was creepy that we were talking about you as if we knew you. I mean – I guess we have met some of you, but maybe the fact that neither of us have a very good grip on who we actually know is part of why we both love fantasy football so much.

He was amazed when I told him that I actually own the Jordy CD. So I took this picture this morning as proof. It’s real. Even if I knew how to use Photoshop (which I don’t) I would most likely not include my own hand in the picture.

So now that you know I really own Jordy, you probably aren’t interested in meeting me, but if you get a chance you should meet Crouton Boy. He is great, and he didn’t kill me OR MetroDad so you should be safe too. (Unless the who law of averages thing gets to you.)

  1. I’m glad he didn’t kill you…but I’m wondering when you’ll meet someone in real life you acutally DO NOT like. Then what do you do?

  2. You could post hate mail about them as long as they don’t know where you live.

    It would be like the episodes of “Love Connection” when they had a bad date.

  3. I’m sorry. I am just not picking up the James Bond vibe from “Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah”. I am getting more Sgt Joe Friday with “Just the facts, ma’am. Just the facts.” 😉

  4. That is just because you can’t hear my accent over the internet.

  5. It sounds like you had a great time! :)

  6. I think it’s really cool that you met Crouton Boy. He seems neat and not ax murdery at all.

    I once owned the Jordy CD too. Just to make fun of it, of course.

  7. You’re lucky I left my morning star in the car, or perhaps I would have killed you.

    But no, I had a good time, too! The steak was nummy, the conversation was highly entertaining, and the beer was plentiful. I’d call that a perfect evening.


  8. And what the hell am I doing in that picture, anyway? I look like something out of Beetlejuice…

  9. Ahem. I’d like to know what was said about me.

  10. I’d just like to point out that if you keep playing the odds by meeting people from the web….one of them WILL kill you.

  11. Admittedly, I’m kinda bummed because I didn’t get back in touch with the great Crouton Boy on Wednesday…because I was in meetings…and doing work crap. Sheesh. Maybe next time he’s in town.

  12. You know, San Diego is a great place to visit! How come no one ever comes to San Diego? I wanna have lunch with blogging royalty!
