Conversation about "Bob"

I had a dream last night.

I went back in time a few years and ran into a "certain" famous person. (who will not be named here to protect his identity....ok, to protect me from being teased, really.) We'll call him "Bob". Bob was a teenager, and he was really into fencing. I went to a fencing tournament of his and he did very poorly. His father was quite angry with him and said he wouldn't speak to him anymore. (I know, what kind of a parent does that?!)

Anyhoo- my sister and I pulled "Bob" aside to cheer him up, and I tried to explain to him that sometimes we win things, and sometimes we lose. I wanted him to understand that he could still be a famous fencer if he just stuck to it, when my sister pulled me aside.

"What are you doing?! If you talk him into fencing, he won't give up and become a famous actor! We like him as an actor, so encourage him to quit fencing!"

So, I think it was my sister and my fault that "Bob" became a famous actor, and not a fencer.

Oh, incidentally, he came to visit me a few years later (in the present) and he stayed in my guest bedroom and I fixed him chocolate chip pancakes- which he said were the best ever. Oh, and we had family home evening with him, too.

I'd say, all in all, I had a pretty productive night, wouldn't you?

P.S. (Laur- I bet you can't guess who it was! hee hee)

We'll just have to wait and see if he ever does any fencing in future movies. If so, we will know it's a SIGN!!!
