Hello there In November 2008, Tim tagged along with a friend meeting her friends at Philadelphia Irish Pub. Michele was one of them. "We were going back and forth at each other, with little sarcastic digs," Michele said. Tim said her coat looked like his grandmother's couch. Michele said Tim's ratty wallet must have been his 10th birthday present. "I wasn't sure what I wanted to come of it, but I knew I had a good time," she said. A few days later, Michele asked their mutual friend for Tim's e-mail address.
