Meeting Mike

Last night, I was working when my best friend texted me a picture.  She’s at a conference in San Diego.  Last night, the company hired Aerosmith to preform and Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs guy) is there as a keynote speaker.  The pic is of her and Mike Rowe.

My first thought was “I’m in the wrong line of work.”  My second was “I’m so jealous.”  My third was “Why?  You’re a spas, remember?  Even if you were there and he suggested you two take a picture together, you’d just slink away.”

Hmmm, that’s true.  I know from experience.  I have had the opportunity to meet Sascha Konietzko of KMFDM more than once and I never have.  As a matter of fact, when they were specifically sitting in a local record store, signing autographs, I panicked and sent my favorite CD with aforementioned best friend to the desk to get it autographed. That night, at the concert, he and wife Lucia, were in the audience while the opening band played.  My nephews & aforementioned best friend all went up and talked to them.  I attempted not to make eye contact with anyone even remotely close to the table where the group was.

I have a hard time meeting new people in general.  Meeting people I admire is kind of like having a personality blackout.  My brain screams Hide!! Maybe they won’t see you!  Um, yeah, that’s not weird at all.  It’s part of the reason I have never signed up to go to a writer’s conference, I might have the opportunity to meet a writer that I read.  It might cause a mental breakdown or something.

I’m excited she met Mr. Rowe.  She said he seemed really nice.  I am jealous, but I’m also kinda glad it wasn’t me.
