While waiting at the baggage carousel yesterday with David after a trip to Adelaide for the day for work, I started getting a little too engaged with NCIS showing on the TV right next to it.
I got somewhat distracted when I heard some muttering behind me. I turned around, in time to catch David retracting his hand from a handshake with someone. I looked at the man David was speaking to and as I did so, caught his eye.
Realising that I did not actually know him, I turned around and continued watching NCIS. The box we were waiting for came, and David and I walked away.
As I did so, David turns to me and asks, "Did you know whose hand I just shook?"
I shrugged, thinking it was some dude he met from before. After all, he did not look particularly interesting and was in fact, I thought, rather shaggy.
"That was Ricky Ponting."
