|Obviously I am an introvert|
I was recently at my parents picking something up and strolled in the hallway of the infamous Breen family pictures. Seeing this one of George and I, brings back the vague memories I still have of that day...
Nov. 1988 I was a new-ish 3 year old with my little brother Timmy almost 2 (oh did I mention we both met George?!). This is how my Mom tells the story....
Momsy was at home mopping the floor (thrilling.) with two crazy toddlers running around. Her younger brother called her and said the Vice President was speaking that afternoon at a local community college and asked if she wanted to come. Mom hemmed and hawed because apparently its not a good idea for two little people to miss or postpone nap time. Eventually she caved in. Good call Mom.
So the four of us are all there wandering around at the rally when my Mom notices some guys are kind of following us around. Um creepy!? Turns out they were the Secret Service. They approached my Mom and uncle and said they were looking for a nice American family and asked if us kids wanted to meet George and Barbara Bush. Apparently we looked like a normal American family...they should come back and see us all now. How does a parent say no to the Secret Service?!
Funny I don't remember being held by Mr. Bush or my famous hand wave in my pink penguin jacket BUT I do remember being passed to Mrs. Bush. Barbara Bush has completely white hair and went totally white at a young age. I still remember being held by her and thinking, "Hey this lady looks A LOT like Grandma Breen. Hmmm..." Now my grandma was all white hair and that happened at a young age for her as well. Apparently after meeting the future first Lady/Grandma impersonator, I was passed on down to dear ol' George. I still chuckle looking at what a little ham I was up there...I definitely was very shy as a child.
You can seem my Mom underneath Dan Quayle's right elbow in her 80's glasses and green rain coat. Trying not to judge you based on the fashion of the 80's mama-cita.
So that's my claim to fame friends...well at least until I write a best-seller or win "America's Got Talent"...
But what about you...have you ever met anyone famous??
Pray do tell!! :)
