How did he react?
Me: "Hey! I am doing a project: I compliment one person per day-..."
He: Started laughing
Me: "You know what's to come right?"
He: "Yeah... Thank you!"
How did I feel?
It was sweet! Of course I was not the first person to compliment him on his beard. No surprise, the beard's outstanding.
I met Patrick at the station, we got on the same train and chatted. He told me he supported occupy and that his neck tattoo saying "we are 99%" was there for educational reasons: He teaches at a trade school. Obviously a lot of students ask him about the tattoo. As a response he asks them to research on occupy. He doesn't want to persuade, he wants to inform. He did inform me: He is a glass processing lecturer and I learned about the difference between glassblowing and glass making (Glass making is performed with a big pipe- Glassblowing is not). Good to know! Thanks, Patrick. And all the best to you and your piece of hair art!
