“So, I thought, OK, I’m going to just give this a go. And so I sat with him and I just started telling the story. I thought he’d get up and kind of wander off because he just came over and sat. He sat there through the whole thing and listened to the whole thing. In the end, he’s like, ‘I like that.’” she added
“I was so happy. I didn’t go to him and try to solicit some kind of response. And I got it! I got the one I wanted! It went really well, so that was great.” she further added.
