Day 269 - Lunch With Phil

About eight years ago I had just (As in either that day or the day prior, I can't remember) started working at Tippett Studio. I was green. I was new. I was excited. I was invited to go to lunch with some people. Unbeknownst to me it was Phil Tippett's birthday lunch! I found this out upon arrival. The last thing I wanted to do was be noticed since I was so new. I was still afraid they had made an error and hired me by mistake. If someone noticed me, I might be found out and discarded like the imposter I was, therefore I took a seat at the far end of the table to remain inconspicuous. Low and behold, who should sit right next to me? Phil. Food came and went. Conversations around me picked up and fell off. When finally there was a moment of silence. A long uncomfortable moment of silence. Then Phil peered at me and said the first and the last thing said to me that lunch, "So where'd they find you?". Ahhh... Good times. Happy Birthday Phil.
