I met tonight's original gift exchanger when doing a swap with someone else about a month ago; in other words, I didn't know him too well.  We emailed earlier in the week to decide on meeting up at a local restaurant.  When I got to the restaurant tonight, I saw a sign on the door that said they were closed yesterday and today for repairs.  I waited around the restaurant entrance for about 25 minutes, but there was no sign of him.

You learn a lot about how to work a corner, where this restaurant happened to sit; among other things, I was giving people alternate dining options.

About 200 feet away was the place where I met him originally.  I decided to go there to see if they had this guy's phone number.  They didn't.   He also quit the restaurant!  I couldn't get a hold of him and he didn't show, so I had to go to plan B.

In fitting fashion, tonight's exchanger is an improvisor.  Ha!  In pulling double duty, he found some items in his car, which I'll give to the person tomorrow.

His plan: Open a can of whoop-ass
on the guy who didn't show
-Profession: Actor; Improvisor

-Favorite kind of telephone:  Smart Phone

-Provide me with another scenario other than food that involves a man, a can and a plan:  A guy gets drunk and goes fishing.

-Your other gift is a hostess set.  1) Are you the hostess with the most-ess?  2) If so, what is your most-ess?:  Yes, I am.  I have the ability to entertain on a shoestring budget.

-You're our fourth bearded gift exchanger.  Are you jolly?:  Yes, I am jolly.  Super jolly, in fact.
