Celebrity Sightings

A couple of weeks ago, the FLGs were at the Whole Foods in Old Town Alexandria.  FLG saw somebody he recognized, somebody who is on TV a lot, but could quite place who they were.   The reaction of the person when he recognized the recognition on FLG's face confirmed FLG's suspicion.

Mrs. FLG walked up.

Mrs. FLG: What is it?

FLG:  Nothing, I just saw somebody I recognized and it bothers me that I can't place who he is -- either a congressman or a public policy commentator or something.  For some reason, I want to say Pete Domenici, but it wasn't him.

Mrs. FLG:  This is going to bother you all day, isn't it?

FLG:  Absolutely.

In fact, it has been bothering FLG for weeks.  But today, finally, FLG saw a Kyocera commercial and  the mystery was solved -- it was Peter Morici.

Mrs FLG --

You must let your husband out more. He's mistaking five foot six econo nerds for celebrities, and that's hazardous for both his health and professional development.

Yrs sincerely, etc.
