Name Dropping

The only remotely famous person I've ever met, i didn't even really meet. I was walking down the street in Boston, minding my own business on a lovely April day. As I was glancing in the windows of the shops and restaurants I noticed a very familiar face sitting in a Greek restaurant. It took me a nano-second to figure out who it was. Low and behold it was Quentin Tarantino. He smiled at me really nicely, and i was almost tempted to go in and sit and chat with him, because he was all alone. But I didn't want to be intrusive. I was 21 and a total fox back then, so i wouldn't want him to get the wrong idea either. Although, often I lay awake at night wondering if Kill Bill would've starred UMA had I went in and sat with him? The world may never know. Jim Carey might possibly be next on my famous sightings list... He is sorta going to be in my family come July! I'm not even kidding and I LIKE IT A LOT!
