"THAT GIRL" AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

                             

Heads were turning at 7th and Montana this morning as an Anonymous Potential Celebrity arrived on the scene, Power Walking her way down 7th Street and into Our Favorite Starbucks.  "Hey, wasn't that Marlo Thomas?," asked Kathy.  "I don't know," I replied, "I'll check."  And so I went inside, intent on finding out whether Thomas -- perhaps best known for her starring role in the 1960s sitcom That Girl -- was in our midst.  I gaped;  I gawked;  I surreptitiously pointed my camera phone in her direction ... all to no avail.  In the end, I only succeeded in arousing the suspicion of a man sitting at the counter who looked at me like I had three heads.  Was I embarrassed?  Of course not!  After all, aren't we all Free to Be… You and Me ...?

LoL !!!... Well I'll tell ya...I think we as human being are at our most humorious when we think we are "Free to be you and me". Cought in the act of being our selves, is the stuff that Comadians make a living at by showing us how much we are ALL really alike... I'm sure I would have giggled and waved too...awful huh?...Kit
