Light Speed Fine Arts booth bought Stephanie Leonidas and Grant Bowler to their booth. Frustratingly, Light Speed wasn’t big on the details of when. So Saturday, as I was racing past their booth in a vain attempt to get into another raffle, I saw the place names for these actors on the table.
After I was done racing, I circled back to the booth and got Grant Bowler to sign. His accent caught me by surprise. By now I should know everyone in Hollywood is from somewhere overseas. Crassly I mentioned his ascent. You could just tell by the glint in his eye he was going to tell me that I had the ascent. But I think he saw that I saw what was coming. So he didn’t. Did that even make sense?
He asked if I watched the show. Then he asked if I played the game. I said no to the game. Then I flipped it back to him. He said he did play and he enjoyed it.
Then he pointed to his costar and asked if I recognized her. I told him only because of the photos in from of her. He said, now she has an ascent.
So I took my cue and slid on over to Stephanie Leonidas. Her dark hair looked almost unnatural after watching a season of red hair on her. In fact, I didn’t see the same person at all. She smiled and since she seemed so different I had nothing to say. Imagine that, me bashful. I’m sure I said SOMETHING but I’m not sure what. I’m sure she smiled back politely at whatever I said.
Then it back to the races.
