ravengirl57 When Adam was walking over from other bar, he led this entourage, like the pied piper, filling up our bar, which had started to quiet down.

@rach_eva Okay, so he was leaving & I said his name & he looked at me & I reached out my hand to him & he grabbed it and said, “did you have a good time baby?” and I kinda reached toward him and we exchanged kisses on the cheek. And basically he’s perfect and I love life.
