Last night, an email from this guy:
Hi! It’s Dave Shrager. My friend showed me your blog and I think it’s well written and hilarious! I do not take it personally and let’s face it, my hair is kinda crazy.
He complimented my writing, so, you know, points for him! Let’s face the fact that I am a sucker for flattery and if Jeff Reed ever wrote me all, “Your (sic) the best writer ever and I luv u. Are you also slutty, by any chance?” I’d probably rename him Skippy Awesome.
David Shrager let me know that he does entertainment law as well, that he does have tattoos, and that his hair, as evidenced in the photos he sent of him with some of his famous clients/friends has always been a bit crazy.
Case in point:
I wrote back:
Well! A sense of humor. Color me surprised because your friends are sure all GRR! SNARL! BITCH! SLAP! I mean, I didn’t say you were a bad lawyer. I said you LOOK like a bad lawyer. Geez.
I shall share your email and some of your photos tomorrow and if I may be so bold: Your hair is FABULOUS in the photo with Chingy. Very David Beckham. Go back to that.
See what I mean?
So the moral of the story … sometimes people will surprise you by having a sense of humor and sometimes flattery will get you everywhere with PittGirl.
