The most famous person I’ve ever met…

Can you believe that the most famous person I’ve ever met is Tom Daschle?

Does that even count? He’s was my state Senator for the entire time I’ve been alive, save these last few Thune years. I’d have to be in a cave not to meet him. I shook hands with him at a Democratic Party celebration party back in 1992 – the first year Clinton won.

I helped the Dem’s by going door to door encouraging people to vote. They did, apparently. And Daschle was re-elected. Or maybe he was just there. Regardless, my friend’s dad was talking to him and he introduced me. Daschle thanked me.

I also met Tim Johnson that night.

If there’s someone even more famous that I’ve met — which I classify as “shaking hands or engaging in a short conversation with” — then I’ve forgotten him or her. And whoever that is can’t be all that famous if I can’t even remember a name.

What about you? Who’s the most famous person you’ve ever met?

Just something that was on my mind. I didn’t want you to think I was neglecting BMOWP. I’ve just been very busy and very, um, outside. What I’ve Been Reading will be coming up soon.

So, yeah. Carry on with your day.
