This story has nothing to do with DC, but it’s a story I’ve wanted to tell for a while now.
In approximately 2005, G and I’d just moved from Los Angeles to Portland. I was 25 and a newly licensed attorney. We were at the gym, lifting weights together. I was doing something like this:
A lady started talking to us and asked us about our jobs. Because I was lifting, George answered.
“I work for Safeway…and she’s just a lawyer.”
The lady almost sh*t herself. She said something like “Just a lawyer?!!!”…and then George started laughing. It was hilarious. Classic George move. It’s impossible to be an ego-maniac around him.
