adriana and jay grew up together, actually. so we can always say that your dude was one of adriana's first friends after she moved to nyc when she was 18 and started college at columbia? she'd probably think that what he does is really awesome and would even volunteer to help if they were in need of another set of hands. or eyes. or, you know, tits.
adriana is quite familiar with self-deprecation, and deflection is her favorite past time. she is a manager for suite sales for the (wildly unsuccessful) new york jets so she has the ability to be incredibly convincing when the occasion calls for it.
