Lloyd Dobler may be a fictional character, but I owe him one.
A young woman sat in the now deceased Uptown Bar and Grill in Minneapolis, sharing a drink with a friend on a cold winter night.
She had just met a guy, who the friend happened to know a little bit. The friend said the guy was "a real Lloyd Dobler."
That meant something to the young woman, something good.
Now I'm not saying my wife married me because a mutual friend of ours compared me to Lloyd Dobler.
But it sure didn't hurt.
Ever been compared to a character from a movie?
