I has the worst 30 seconds in recent memory earlier today. I was on a bus headed home, and just before my stop this guy with a Giantbomb t-shirt gets on. I *never* see that in public around here, so I figured I'd try to say hi, and maybe try to acknowledge how we're both probably feeling these days.
So, I go up to him right before my stop, pat him on the shoulder and say "fuck Ryan Davis, right?". Not a good opener in retrospect, because he comes back with a somewhat indignant, argumentative "I LOVE Ryan Davis". I instantly think:
a) aw crap, he doesn't know the meme, and
b) HOLY SHIT, he used the present tense there, maybe he doesn't even know about recent events!
Needless to say, he did know about the news, but man the last 15-20 seconds of rushed conversation after that point was a trainwreck on my end. It had the opposite of the intended effect for me, and I dunno what he thought of me, but may even be out there thinking "what an asshole".
So, if you're that guy taking public transit in Pitt Meadows, and you happen to read this, know that I was just trying to say that I love Ryan Davis too, and I hope you're doing alright.
