We're sitting at Pappasito's down in Austin and he tried to embrace me. I deflected the embrace really well. He's a strong man and really works out a lot and I don't. I had done a good job and he kind of pauses for a second. He looks at me and he's being really serious. You never can tell, but you know, he was looking really serious.
So, anyway, he was like, "Why don't you like to be hugged? Did your parents, like, beat you?"
So I answered, "Yes," just to put him off. "Yeah, that's what it is. I'm real sensitive."
And then he poked me! And I said, "Dude, don't poke me."
He said, "Seriously."
And I said, "No, seriously! Seriously!"
And he said, "Tell me, what's the deal?"
And I said, "Kyle, I'm skinny."
He snickered and poked me anyway.
I said, "No, I'm serious. Like, I get real self-conscious, you know. People hug me and then they say, 'Dude, go get something to eat!' It makes me feel bad."
And he poked me again. So, I said, "Dude! Quit poking me!"
And before I knew it, the dude is chasing me around the restaurant that's full of people. He's chasing me around Pappasito's until he corners me and full on hugs me!
Anybody that's been around the guy knows … he just throws his arms around you! It doesn't matter how you feel about yourself or what's messed up about you!
