Larry David moment: apologies or ignoring the incident?

I must've watched to many episodes of curb your enthusiasm. I was talking to a number of junior analysts about someone pretty high up in the potential client firm being a "pretty, pretty good" in media, When the very same person walked in, heard the comment, and acted as if he were not offended at all. should I write him a note to apologize?

I wish... I don't think he recognized the line, judging from his reaction. So the predicament is: Do I pretend it did not happen or do I try to explain?

you're probably the only one thinking about it today. forget it happened, and if someone asks what you meant just say "ah I don't even know, probably was watching too much curb"

you're making too much of this, bro

I don't get the reference at all.

There's a strong chance the person who heard what you said doesn't either.

If the guy doesn't watch curb you don't want to know him anyways
