No, this isn’t some sort of perv fanfic.
So Wendy, Hanna, and I went out to dinner tonight at Betty’s in the Short North. We were seated by the window and at some point during the night I saw Wendy staring out the window at a guy walking across the street to the restaurant. He came in quietly, knit cap covering his head, and took a corner seat at the bar. He was definitely being very inconspicuous.
“That’s Ty Pennington,” said Wendy.
At this point Hanna almost fell off her chair. I know it sounds weird, but aside from Rachel Ray and America’s Funniest Home Videos, that little girl’s favorite show is Extreme Home Makeover. We tried to talk her into going over and getting his autograph, but she was too shy.
As for me, I never did see his face so I’ll trust Wendy that it was indeed him. Whenever I glanced over at the guy, all I could see was the top of his buttcrack peeking through his lowrider jeans.
According to The Dispatch, he’s in town because “The TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has picked the Whitehall home of former Marine Sgt. Jason L. Thomas, whose heroism is depicted in the movie World Trade Center, as its next project.”
He was spotted once more by Wendy at Lemongrass on our way back. Alas, we did not stop in to ask for an autograph for fear of looking like stalkers.
But I’ll always have my memory of his buttcrack.
