Okay, so yesterday Mitt Romney's brother was in our office all day. He was using a conference room to hold meetings with prospective donors. I didn't meet him, but I passed by once when the door was open. I saw him and heard him speak. He doesn't look much like his brother but his voice was very similar. (By the way, if President Obama's brother were here (does he have a brother??) I'd be just as interested in seeing him.) The point being, though, that we are a little place tucked in the southeast corner of Washington - - we don't get many celebrities here. Even faux celebrities. Well, I guess that's not exactly true. Valerie Bertinelli's nephew lives here. My son went to school with him. Does that count? I guess that's kind of like Mitt Romney's brother being here - - not Mitt Romney. Valerie Bertinelli's nephew - not Valerie Bertinelli. Oh, and I forgot - - Batman has a house here. No, not Christian Bale, or Val Kilmer, or Michael Keaton or George Clooney. The REAL Batman - Adam West. (I wonder if Robin ever visits?) And, of course, the famous quarterback Drew Bledsoe grew up here and comes back often. And I'm sure other famous people or their brothers or nephews have come here because we are kind of famous for our wine and very famous for our onions.
But, anyway, yesterday was almost as exciting to me as my $15 worth of rewards coupons at Albertson's the other day! (When you lead a boring life, it doesn't take much to make you happy.)
Hey! Don't these kinds of things come in threes?!
