The Meeting

Today I had the pleasure of my first live meeting with a fellow blogger. It was an entirely unplanned and coincidental affair and this, my friends, is how it happened.

En route to the Royal Brisbane Hospital I noticed my car was emitting some nasty odours. I thought I may need to put in some oil or coolant but thought, heat's not so bad yet, I'll wait till I pick my sister up. Unfortunately, or fortunately as the case turned out to be, while waiting at the lights to turn into the hospital, I noticed the temperature gauge had in fact shot up, and was almost already in the red zone. EMERGENCY! I thought. Luckily right next to these lights is a BP service station, and I whipped it in.

I wandered inside to use the facilities while the car cooled down and noticed out of the corner of my eye some young fellows looking at me, but paid no heed. I wasn't going to stare anyone down in a show of machismo. To the toilet with me. As I exited the restroom however, I was surprised to hear, "Dave!" from behind me as I walked away.

"Was that someone I knew?" I wondered to myself. I cautiously looked around the corner to see a familiar face.

He repeated, "Dave?"

"Allister?!"

And there you have it. My first live meeting with a fellow blogger. It was sweet, and can I say, glad to have met you in person Allister. Sorry you didn't have your phone there to immortalise the moment. Plus, when I'm famous, you could have flogged it off.

Haha.
