I’m curious if anyone has met any famous people, and if so, what happened during the meeting. Last night, I met one, and I didn’t even know who he was. I can’t tell you why I stood out to him, gotta keep that part under wraps, but I can tell you the rest of the story.
I was working, sitting in my car, and a black limo pulled up next to me at a red light, and the rear window rolled down. A guy, who seemed nothing flashy, poked his head out the rear window and told me to stop sleeping on the job. >:( I said, “I’m not sleeping, I’m looking down at the computer.” ;D I was on my Ipad looking at Yoyoexpert. He asked where I was from, and I said, “here.” I asked where he was from, because I heard a southern drawl. He said, “Louisiana.” So, he complimented me on my smile. :-[ Then, I asked why he was in a Limo. It didn’t seem he was dressed for the Prom, and he looked kinda old for the Prom. The limo didn’t even seem that new, but what do I know about limos anyway? He had some male friends in the limo putting two cents in here and there, and one had a huge afro.
So, I asked if he was a rapper or something, cause I love rap music. But, I know those artists well, and he didn’t look familiar. He said, “No.” I asked if he was famous. He just kinda smiled. All this happened while he was stopped at a red light, and the taxi driver behind him was growing impatient. I was parked. So, I said, come on, who are you? I couldn’t gauge it, he was not flashy, and his hair was kind of a mess too. :-\ Finally, he said, "Football, the NFL. " I said, Oh, I don’t watch football at all, but what is your name? I might watch now. He said, #22…New England Patriots. I told him that he was very nice, and told him I’d look him up and have a good night. I almost turned into a groupie and asked for a photo, but I thought better of it, cause it was hard to get all groupie without knowing who he was. I was busy working all night last night, and just now, I looked up #22 Patriots.
It was this guy…what a cool dude, down to earth, and very cute southern drawl too. I think he must have been coming from one of the many clubs in the area.
I met a few other people, and one that stands out is Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. He said hello to me at a Red Sox Baseball game during the World Series. I was standing in the aisle when he walked past. I froze up like a groupie. ::) I barely said hello back, and I’m ashamed of that one. I should at least get some photos with these people. Steven Tyler looks much better in person too, very down to earth guy. Jerry Springer and Ben Affleck were at the same game, but I had no interaction with them, they were just walking by and sitting in the stands.
You guys met any nice celebrity types?
