I’ll never forget the moment I knew I was in love with Garrett.
I had just started recovering from my illness, and I was at a Christmas party in a section of Boston that’s notoriously bad for parking. And there was a snowstorm that night.
Garrett was on residency and working until midnight, so he couldn’t make it.
Around 12:30, I turned around and saw Garrett sitting alone in the corner in his scrubs. He had to drive across the city and find parking in a snowstorm after 12+ hours of work.
I was stunned to see him. I ran over and asked him why he was there.
“Because I just wanted to sit here and watch you tell stories. I love watching you tell stories.”
It was the most seen I’d ever felt in my life.
Recently, I got the chance to hang out on A Simple Life podcast with Michael Jefferies and do just that—tell stories.
Lots of stories. The story I just told. And many others I’ve never told.
We spent 90 minutes laughing and gripping on tightly through getting sick, falling in love, exploring sexuality, finding this work, getting engaged in a rainstorm—so many stories.
This is honestly one of my favorite interviews I’ve ever done. I feel like Michael really opened up something inside of me and got more details and vulnerability—and zaniness—than my average interview.
We had so much fun that I’ll be back on in a few weeks to tell 90 minutes of more stories.
Check it out. It’s a great episode. If you ever had any questions about me or my journey, it’s probably in this episode.
It’s up above. So go ahead and listen.
