Now I want to talk about my friend David Weaver.
I actually have two friends named David Weaver. The first one I met in college and we took Intro to Theater together. I dropped the class because it was boring. David and I stayed friends ever since. He can be seen taking photos from treetops or of awesome bands during shows.
That’s not the David Weaver I’m talking about.
The David Weaver I’m talking about I met a few years ago as part of the cast of Love From A Stranger. While David acts beautifully, the productions I’ve had the pleasure to witness that he’s been a part of is when he does the sound. I think he even has an Emmy for doing sound. He does something really neat for a living involving television and engineering that keeps him out all the time just so the rest of the world can watch TV. Yay David!
Now, most people that Greg meets during plays kind of go their separate ways after the production and besides Facebook friendship we don’t see them again. However, somehow David found my LiveJournal and we became really good friends from there. He and Greg like to go to lunch every once in a while, and we keep in touch by phone, email, texts, Twitter, and Facebook.
David is an incredibly supportive friend. He really listens when you tell him things and wants to know everything about you. He never forgets a face and makes anybody he comes in contact with feel warm and fuzzy. Like many of my favorite people, he loves long emails and big hugs. He can spin anything around to make it positive, and is incredibly sensitive and affectionate. I wish there were more people like David in the world because he’s very smiley and relaxed.
This weekend we went to go see Showboat, where David was doing the sound. I wish I had gotten a good picture of us together. Since I didn’t, I made this very realistic drawing:
While he was scurrying about setting up, he made sure to stop by our table several times for hugs and shooting the breeze. During the show whenever I heard an awesome sound gag, I’d look back at him with a big grin. We even spent some time together during intermission, but we were feeling super weary since it’s a long show after a long day. We said goodbye after the show and I just really wish we could have spent the whole evening together.
Love you David!!!!!
