And we talked some more, for another three hours. There was a little bit of chemistry. I didn't feel like, oh I wanted to kiss him. I felt like I wanted to give him a high five and a chest bump. But you know, a chest bump. [LAUGH] Well let me take a sip for the chest bump. [LAUGH] So you tell them about yours. It was a little bit awkward. John showed up In his suit. Wait, business suit or track suit? Business suit. His jacket and his slacks on. He sat down and was ready to go. Namaste. [LAUGH] He wasn't very flexible, he couldn't touch his toes.

Oh. [LAUGH] [CROSSTALK] He's the opposite of a stripper. He's a minister. [LAUGH] So could you see yourself dating a man of the cloth? I wouldn't run away from it.
