I suppose I'll consider this an encounter, but it was via phone!
othislife13 (Kianna) was in Wilmington in August, & she was at Calico & I was on the phone with her. Anyway, she was meeting Lee, & I was like "Oh my god, you have to keep me on the phone so I can hear this!" anyway, she ended up putting me on the phone with Lee & he was the SWEETEST thing EVER. He was a little drunk too, but who cares? I know he's a nice guy, regardless. Anyway, we talked for a good fifteen to twenty minutes, it was unbelievable. He was telling me that I should be there with him at Calico & everyone, & asked me where I lived. I said, "Canada, you should be here!" and he told me that he loved Canada, & the said, "So, if you're saying I should be there, are you inviting me over? To stay at your house?" & I told him, "Yeah man! Anytime." & he started rambling for a good five minutes about all the makeup he was wearing for season nine, & how he was also really sad that it was ending because he loved the show, what it stood for, & it had become his "life" because he'd been apart of it for so long. He was so genuine & sweet. He told me how much he loves his fans & how much he appreciates them, & he told me if I ever saw him to come say hi, & that he doesn't bite. At the end, he said "I love you Kailyn! It was so nice talking to you!"
I love Lee, he's probably my favourite cast-member for several reasons. First, I LOVE Mouth, & I love Minkus too! I also have NEVER, EVER heard a bad thing about him, not that it matters because what people do on their personal time is their business. But there's not one soul I've spoken to that's ever had a bad or iffy experience with Lee. He's genuinely interested in his fans & makes time for each & every one of you (or as much time as he can make,).
Seriously, if you see him, don't hesitate to say hi, I can guarantee he'll be the friendliest thing on earth. If I see him again, I'm asking him when our sleepover is, haha!
