Given to Jessica from Shawn.

Last Friday, the person I was scheduled to exchange gifts with had something come up and couldn't meet me.  No worries!  I had planned to meet up with my friend for a beer that evening anyway and asked the bartender Tina if she wanted to participate.  During the course of the exchange, I peaked the interest of two middle-aged couples sitting along the right side of the bar.  They never asked me any questions, but over the course of 45 minutes, ran through a laundry list with Tina about me.

On the left side of the bar sat Jessica and I got her interest in the project.  Rather than looping Tina into that conversation, she chatted me up and was wondering what in blazes I was doing.  Shortly before I left, she asked what I was doing in a week (today) and said she'd like to participate.  Tonight, I crawled out from my pad, drove and met her out, and conducted the fastest interview on record at five minutes.  While at the bar, I ran into a newly-engaged Annie and her beau.
