You never know who’s got a Victoria’s Secret model story

It’s always nice when the boss you’re interviewing with shares the same name as your favorite dinosaur, and is wearing the same outfit Alan Grant wore for the entirety of Jurassic Park.


It’s also nice when he sits back and says, “Let me tell you my Victoria’s Secret model story,” and goes on to detail how he went on vacation with his wife to an island in the Caribbean, and how they spent the week alongside Harry Connick, Jr. and his wife (Victoria’s Secret model) Jill Goodacre, who were there on honeymoon.

“Well, so, the last night we were there, I’m sitting at dinner with my wife, looking out at the turquoise water, and the beautiful sunset, and it’s just perfect–I mean, PERFECT. So I lean back and say to her, ‘I just don’t know what could top this. Honey, I just don’t know.’ And just as I said that, Jill Goodacre comes walking down the stairs, looking absolutely ethereal in this dress–I mean, it was like something out of a movie. I couldn’t believe my eyes. ‘I just don’t know what could top this,’ I thought. Then she came down the stairs and I thought, ‘Actually I do know.’ ”

He paused for a second.

“Of course I didn’t say this aloud; marriage is all about selective discretion. But I thought it. I sure-as-hell thought it.”
