she caught me out there at the naacp 2003.
the only cat i wanna meet and have validate me is quincy jones.
so standing backstage at the naacps--
i was talking to jill marie (who hosted the awards with the cast of girlfriends) and i saw q say goodbye to ray charles (who actually died like 4 months later so this could have been the last time he saw him)---

i told jill..."hang on one sec"

and i saw my chance....

i was nervous. i mean im cool with his kids....but i know he dont know im alive.

or worse...cares...

so i sheepishly approached

left foot....right foot....

(passes tyra who is talking to kimora lee---they waiting for limo)

walks up and gets the nerve to barely get out

"ummm...man...you are my hero sir" (tyra heard me say this)

quincy: oh my god....the FUNKIEST CAT ALIVE.....

---yo!! i lost my shit!!! how this motherfucker know im alive and that my shit is funky!!!!!!!!!!!!

he held his hand out....smiled and walked to me...

so i walked with my hand out....

he got closer....

i was smiling....

and then....

he hugged dre3000.....

and left me hanging.

tyra and kim saw ALL of this and i tried to play this off....

we laughed SO hard cause they knew i was embarrassed.

we remember that to this day.
