I love stories of people that have met famous people and people that are actually related to famous people. Just about everyone has a story about their personal encounter with a famous person. So...break out your best cocktail party story and reply below with your own personal brush with fame.
Best story wins...uh...(looking around my kitchen) a cup of coffee with me. But you have to provide your own transportation. And it can't be too early. And maybe we could just meet at Starbucks so I don't have to clean my house to company standards.
|Did you ever meet this guy? He's related to me. That makes me *his* brush with fame.|
My own brushes with fame? So glad you asked.
1.) My half-cousin once-removed is Julie Budd, a singer popular on the East Coast.
2.) I once sold Melina Kanakaredes a day planner. (The chick from Providence and CSI.)
3.) Hootie (Darius Rucker) chatted me up in line at a Dunkin Donuts at Logan Airport.
4.) I've met several authors and poets that you may or may not know...most memorable was former Poet Laureate of the US Billy Collins, before he was Poet Laureate. He was kind of drunk and spacey.
5.) I interviewed Loretta Lynn on the phone, and then met her in person.
6.) Same with Leroy Butler of the Packers.
7.) (See if you can follow this one) My uncle's brother-in-law is Elton John's ex-companion. When my grandmother died (in 1993 in very rural North Carolina), Elton John sent a tree.
Don't make me look like a tool here....reply with your own brushes with fame!
