I was living with a French girl, and he had just moved here, and they were dating when we first met. But I’m freakishly polite, so I saw him and went, Well, he’s the perfect man, and it’s all ruined because now they’re together and I can’t (make a play for him). I thought that that’s not nice to flirt. But the minute I saw him, I went, Well, that’s it, there he is.

When he’d come to pick her up, he’d say, “Oh, hello Lisa,” and I’d say, “Hi,” and I’d go and leave the room, and he thought I was a freak. They went out for two-and-a-half months and six-years-later I met him again at her birthday party and we just never stopped.
