Happy Birthday, Daaaavit. I don't think I could re-tell it, but the Ice Cream Fever story makes my face and stomach hurt from laughing.
I met David for the first time when I was 15 and visiting Adel in the off-season. I was wowed by the big city, and Adel took me to the Belden Diner. I thought I had stumbled onto the Happy Days Set (though the secene actaully bore more resemblance to the Peach Pit, which wasn't created yet. We sat down to order when the door opened and the king of the scene entered, flanked by Riff and Brendan on either side (I think). David was wearing cuffed khakis (maybe jeans) with white socks and black loafers and some kind of letterman's jacket. That was almost 25 years ago.
In '95 or '96 we all went to prom night at the Empty Bottle. David had won a night at the Ambassador West (perhaps for selling the most lasagna). I think Red Red Meat's cover band played and we all dressed up in full prom regalia. I believe David went shirtless with just the tuxedo coat and trousers. David and I danced all night and then drunkenly caught a cab back to the hotel, singing along to the radio and laughing. I never stopped smiling the whole weekend.
WHAT??? Happy Birthday little one!
