First, FITC rocked this year – I had so much fun, it was incredibly good! and I loved seeing everyone again, it’d been too long!
Ok so the quick story:
Monday, I’m sitting at the booth and not really paying attention, someone walks up and says hey to Chris Allen and me and I shake their hand. About 15 minutes later, I ask Chris Allen, “hey wasn’t that Chris Pelsor?” – he says “no, he couldn’t make it this year”. I scratch my head and think ok, guess that’s not Chris Pelsor I just saw 15 minutes ago.
Tuesday: Same guy walks in, and I think “now THAT’S Chris Pelsor” and I says to him ” hey you made it! ( real excited like )” and the guy says “dood I’ve been here.” So y0u can imagine, I thought “oh this isn’t Chris Pelsor then, cause Chris Allen said it wasnt’ him”.
So, after about 15 minutes of jawin’ with this guy, I finally had had enough and I says to him ” dood, you look exactly like Chris Pelsor”, and he pulls out his name badge and looks at me like I’m insane and says “That’s because I AM Chris Pelsor!”.
It was like reuniting with a long lost friend! there were hugs and crying (ok, not really, I don’t cry, but Chris was inconsolable )! We’d hung out in Brighton some 2yrs ago with Keith, Reb and Chris and talked online since and he was one of my favorite people in the community and I was sure this was him – and well, it was 😉
