This Magic Moment

This was the defining moment for me not only of Comic-Con 2010 but for the last several years (since 2005!) of my Chief persona. The circle is complete.

 

A thousand thanks to Ace Kim, the catalyst for the entire story as follows:

 

At Qualcomm Stadium while waiting for the trolley to Comic-Con, I get no less than 3 missed calls, two texts, and a voicemail from Ace who is already at the con and has some emergency or something to call him about. I call him up and he tells me "You're here."

What?

"You're here. Chief's here!"

What??

"I told him I have a friend who looks just like him, and he wants you to come get a photo with him"

NOWAI

 

After arriving at the con I hook up with Ace and we make our way over to the booth where Aaron Douglas is with a crowd of other celebrities doing signings. Ace steps up and tells him he's brought his friend, and as the people in front of me step aside and Aaron and I lay eyes on each other, he goes "Whoa."

 

He then signed a photograph for me with a very special message.
