Question Of The Week
Circa 1996.....before a husband and kids.....I was a bit of a wild child. Most people I know since marriage don't believe it and those of you who have seen it first hand need not prove it here. Those records have been sealed.
But, there I was at the New Orleans Jazz Festival.....tie dye t-shirt, two hippy braids hanging over my shoulders, ever-present Birkenstocks and probably a hemp necklace on. And, there came Adam Duritz, the lead singer of Counting Crows and I was a bit star struck. OK, more than a bit. He was inconspicuously walking through the crowds (right - with that hair, not possible)....trying not to draw attention to himself....and then I came along.
"ADAM!!!!!! Oh my gosh!!!!! Is it really you?!!!!!"
Awkward, awkward, awkward. He thanked me for causing such a scene and told me he was leaving the festival. I felt about as big as the crickets I heard chirping during the uncomfortable silence.
***So, it could be said that I don't handle celebrity sightings well. How about you? Who have you seen and what happened?
