Chickening Out on a Hometown Hero

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

I could've met former astronaut & Ohio Senator John Glenn yesterday, had I not been A) too impatient to wait for the crowd around him to thin, & B) too wussy to say anything to him anyway.

I try not to have regrets, but MAN, do I wish I'd stuck around to meet John Glenn. I'm not sure what I would've said ("Hey! I drove down the John & Annie Glenn Highway on my way to college" seems ridiculous), but I could've at least tried.

As a consolation prize, I left the event (a memorial service for fellow Ohio Senator Howard Metzenbaum, who died in March) & stepped onto an elevator occupied by some current member of the Senate rushing to a floor vote. Unfortunately, I have no idea who he was.


  1. I'm glad to know others have a famous-people fear, too. There are a number of people I'd love to meet (STEPHEN KING!!!), and I figure my mouth with dry up and brain will cease to function should I ever actually do so.

  2. when did you get chips?

Leave me some love.
