A Gavin "Gig" Wilson Memory
It was a Saturday morning in 2001 and I was living in Hollywood, CA. Noticing my cat Lexie was out of food, I ran out to the small boutique pet food store at the foot of the Hollywood Hills.
After gathering Lexie's favorite food, I was walking around a corner aisle, trying not to drop any cans when I clumsily bumped into a man walking in the opposite direction...
It was William Shatner!
We were face-to-face and made very close eye contact. Instinctively I apologized and he mumbled a polite but somewhat annoyed "pardon me".
I made my way to the counter and, as I stood there paying for the cat food I was thinking, "That was Captain James T. Kirk!"
I said, "Oh Gavman, I gotta tell you something. This morning I was at the pet food store and bumped into this guy. We were face to face and I noticed his eyes were totally blood shot."
Gig said, "Yeah, so?"
I said, "It was William Shatner!!"
Without missing a beat, Gig said:
"What.., too many Romulan Ales at the bridge last night?!"
Classic Gavin Wilson wit.
