  • Well, I Met Admiral Sullivan

    Last weekend my friend Roxanne and I traveled to Phoenix for a Police collector's show. Admiral Sullivan knew we were coming and said he would drop by to check us out.

    Roxanne and I were attempting to vend our priceless police collectibles (AKA crap) at the show when a slight man walked behind out tables, announced, "I'm the Admiral," and plopped down in a chair. Then without further adieu he attempted to help sell our stuff to passers by. This was when things got colorful. First, the Admiral's thought process is akin to the way he posts messages here on o.com. This somehow combined with his knowledge of physics and "stuff" and when he spoke with customers, he got distracted and the conversations often drifted. The next thing we knew, he was giving our customers detailed lectures on the metal and mineral analysis of their jewelry, talking about time compression, or telling them why no one knew what electrons really were (picture a younger version of the professor from Fringe, but more frightening). Oddly enough, he drew a crowd of cops throughout the day but they were more interested in hearing what he had to say than sending him off for a 72 hour evaluation.

    Then the Admiral introduced us to Trigger, his electric horse who travels the universe at the speed of light. If any of you are old enough to remember the movie Harvey, I believe Trigger and Harvey are related.

    Should any of you come to Phoenix and wish to meet the Admiral, here are some simple ground rules for your first encounter:

    1. If he gives you an invisible carrot to feed Trigger, refuse at your own risk. He is quite fond of his equally invisible horse and will take great offense if you decline.

    2. Do not look him directly in the eye. He may take it as a challenge and react accordingly.

    3. He may offer you a drink from his flask (which smells suspiciously like a combination of whisky and hydraulic fluid). He will understand if you decline and admits it is an acquired taste.

    Beyond that I suspect he is harmless if not riled up.

    Nice...we had an officer who collected Police hats from around the world. I believe his hat collection was over a 1,000 of them and we had a police museum in our city. I did not know there were trade shows for just Police stuff

        Sounds like it was a blast. How did he know it was you? And were you able to get rid of your priceless police collectibles?

        Trigger is electric and invisible?

        Wish they had such a show out here! Hmmmm...your downsizing took about 2 years.
        This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

          I previously mentioned to him that Rox had red hair. She was the only red head there. Was easy to spot.

          Thanks to the Admiral's ongoing ramblings (which distracted the buyers) I sold one item for $5. I still have an SUV full of crap... I mean priceless police memorabilia.

          Yes, according to Sully. And just as Jimmy Stewart had long philosophical discussions with Harvey the invisible Rabbit, Sully appears to have deep discussions with Trigger.

          There will be a small show in Cleveland on May 19th and the National Collector's Show in St. Charles, MO on June 30th and July 1st.

            He reminds me of Jerry Lewis' character in The Nutty Professor.

            Except shorter.

            And not as thin.

            And with less hair.

            And no 'Buddy Love.'

            At least their voice is similar.

                      Due to current op-tempo and scheduling pains in the anuses, it's more than likely to not happen. The group thing, that is.
