I saw a local news anchor at the grocery store the other day. I was getting into my car as he was getting his kids out of his–he’d parked behind me in the lot. In typical star-struck fashion I said, “Hey, Wisdom!” to which he replied, “Heeeyyy.” I followed up with the ever-eloquent “I saw you on the news this morning!” He responded with, “Well, at least someone was watching!” Obviously he was kidding and seemed like a really nice guy. But holy cow, I am so awkward.
The only other celebrity meeting I can recall is when I was pretty young and saw a local traffic lady in the mall. I proceeded to cite her entire traffic sign off. Told you I was awkward.
Have you ever met a celebrity? Local or otherwise? What did you say? Are you as awkward as me?
