PostSubject: My Brush With Greatness!   Thu 06 May 2010, 12:54 pm

There's this local celebrity in my town known as The Garlic King. He owns a Lebanese restaurant and he says in his ads on the Radio, "I CAN DO ANYSING!!!" (He has a thick accent).

So I'm at this Parade a couple of Summers ago with my little ones. They go off in their little wagon with Mom into the Parade and this Garlic King guy pulls into the parking lot all dressed up in costume like The Burger King with the windows rolled down on his van. So he drives right by me so I stuck my head into his van window and yelled, "I CAN DO ANYSING!!" So The Garlic King says, "Great! You can drive my van in this Parade!! Shocked So I figured ah what the hell...



That's him waving to everybody in the bubble at the top of the van. He has this hydraulic set-up that rocks the van back and forth and he plays this really loud, awful Lebanese music. My Mom spotted me along the Parade route and laughed her butt off while taking this pic of me. (She was there to take pics of her Granddaughters). As I slowly drove by my Dad, I could read his lips..."I...have...no...son!" :lol:

Awesome pic!

Van Halen at the Forum in Montreal in '84 and U2 at Olympic Stadium in'87 are 2 of my fave concerts I ever attended. Damn those '80's were fun times!

Love the hair in the Def Leppard pic! :lol:

Oh and I guess my brush with fame is talking to Joni Mitchell in the line up at the post office two winters ago. She's from here and was back home visiting.

My relative is a music celebrity. I have had dealings with many criminals, many high profile cases you would know. I have dealt with various politicians. I was in a foreign country and had tea with the former Presidents son. It was a "have not" country, not like the US or France, etc.

My husband went to school with the brother of one of the 9-11 hijackers. Weird, eh?
