In honour of the X-Files revival that starts tonight (!!), I give you this – one of my most prized possessions.
That, my friends, is a 25 year old me that time that AvD and I met William B. Davis, everyone’s favourite Cigarette Smoking Man. It was at MacEwan Hall Ballroom for a spoken word event circa February 1999. I have a vague recollection of him discussing science, physics and all sorts of smart things. We had the opportunity for a meet-n-greet after. He was so very KIND and SWEET. Nothing like his infamous character at all and thus, secured him as one of my favourites for all time. He signed our tickets and took a photo with each of us. I was so excited and nervous!
I have a shit eating grin in the photo. But in my head, all I could think was:
“OH MY GOD! CANCER MAN IS TOUCHING ME! CANCER MAN IS TOUCHING ME!”
It was amazing and he was amazing! And I can’t wait to see him in the revival! I know AvD is excited about seeing her Duchovny in the suit. Me? I am all about Mr. William B. Davis! Can’t wait!
