Most of you don’t know how David and Nathaly met. They say their story is boring so I thought that tonight Miho and my gift to them would be a new story. So here’s the real story of how David and Nathaly met. I’ll just let you listen to it and you’ll see how exceptionally intricate and sophisticated it is. The story is quite the story.

He was on a bicycle biking through Beirut. He was probably the only person who used a bicycle in the streets of Beirut by the way, cleaning the air of the city with his lungs. Ever since he started biking, bicycles in Beirut had become a thing. He was heading downtown for a workout involving circus tricks, contact improvisation and grass-fed meat. He was speeding because he had to keep his heartbeat over a certain threshold else he would fall out of ketosis (God forbid).

She was riding with her friend Maria in a car down Tabaris, 7ad kou3 el falamankeh, 2awal chebek azra2 3a 2idak el yamin matra7ma byou2af el bouncer taba3 el white wel iris, and time was of the essence. They had to be at a concert whose proceeds would save the refugee children of the world. Nathaly had brought together 120 of the biggest sponsors in the countries just by starting to chat with them randomly in restaurants and cafes. And they were almost late. Maria speeds down the avenue, Nathaly opens the door to go save the world. And bam!!

David hits the door and flies off in the distance. While *in* the air he flips his body thanks to his contact improvisation practice in mid air and their eyes cross. A big firework goes off in the middle of Beirut by complete coincidence. The light hurts all the drivers’ eyes who are forced to stop which is awesome because they don’t run over David. David is done flipping his body and lands on his four thanks to his Ido Portal intensive training. Nathaly runs towards him to save him (as she often does). But he’s already on his feet and almost unscathed. She is surprised and asks him how come he’s intact and he says “it’s my paleo training” and is about to go into an hour explanation about his 3 daily hours of training. But she puts her finger on his lips and says shhh. “We need all the help we need, come with me.” She explains how she’s saving all the kids in the world. He tells her he can get them to the event faster on his bike. And somehow he does. They make it in time. Nathaly starts making a speech on stage and finishes by inviting David on stage to thank him for saving the day. He comes on stage, squats (for no apparent reason) then lifts her of her feet when everyone starts clapping as they kiss deeply, and fondly (text for more details).

Most of you didn’t know how David and Nathaly met. Now you know!

I met both of them before I met each of them. Nathaly brought the life to a party I was in in London and I thought, gosh I need to party more with this girl. David and I knew each other at school. But he was the kid who always spoke French and I didn’t really get why. We got closer later and I think he knows by now he has one new brother, among many.
