I have a client who is famous. I used to get all kinds of flustered around famous people, but seeing it from a different perspective has made me realize how bizarre and inappropriate people can be.
I was at a bookstore with Client, and there were people just circlingcirclingcircling our aisle just trying to, I don't know, get C's attention, I guess. Walking down streets, if C is looking down, people will almost get on the floor to look up at C so that C has to catch their eye so they can say something. No matter what C says, if it's within earshot of another human being, there's an 85% chance that that person will respond by telling C that C is brilliant, or hilarious, or whatever. Even if it's just like, "Can I have a glass of water?". (Response: "Of course! You are so brilliant and talented that of course you need water!") You think I'm kidding.
I mean, I understand that this is a rare opportunity to interact with a famous person, that while C just goes about C's business, the other person in the scenario now has a famous person story to take with them. Lord, it's not like I haven't been a name dropper. I'm kind of doing it here.
But then a few weeks ago, I happened to see David Caruso. I mean, it's just David Caruso. Not that bigga deal. But holy cow, have the loonies come out of the woodwork. It just brought this whole celebrity thing to a entirely new level.
So I hereby ban the mention of the words David and Caruso from this blog forevermore.
I'm glad that you love him, or hate him, or are friends with him, or have a restraining order against him, or whatevs.
Just don't do it here on my little blog.
Thank you, and have a stalkerific day.
