Really enjoyed this. Usually 9 minutes of someone making me jealous sucks...but this was great!

Noticed two things...1.) you have good teeth - make your own waynes world extreme close up joke and
2.) your hair grew a lot from the first shot to the last.

DF, you can credit my orthodontist for #1. My teeth were godawful as a youngin'.

The suit is white with pinstripes. And I'll take colonial diplomat any day. Especially in a sea of skinny pants, leggings, and colored sunglasses.

Nice slice-of-life for those of us who could not be there. Sounds like you were well-received, congrats! I esp liked the TravelZoo joke. Well done.
