It was comfortable. I was actually sitting next to him. He was laughing at what people were saying. I was laughing too. Soon it was just us at the table. He turned to me and said "technically I am not allowed to talk to you"
I wince and say "Yeah, I know"
I then lean closer and say "I am sorry about that, I did not mean for that to happen."
Other people showed up and we talked some more. I woke up feeling pretty good and at peace.
