Weekly Homework Assignment


It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the following prompt: Write about an experience you have had with a celebrity.

I've actually had a couple of experiences with celebrities, thanks to my tenure as a PR assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles back in '96. Probably the coolest experience was my encounter with Boyz to Men. No, I'm not huge fan of the Motown Philly boyz, but I think some of their songs are pretty cool.

Anyway, the Birds were playing the Cowboys in a heated Monday Night football matchup. It seemed as if everyone was there. I met Michael and Mario Andretti - even brought them a couple of chicken-cheese-steaks. I showed a few Philadelphia Flyers to their seats.

But, we were so packed that night that we had no more room for Boyz to Men ... so they had to sit in the press box ... next to me ... for the entire game. They were really cool, actually - they chatted with me, and were very respectful of everybody. Not that exciting, I guess, but still (maybe I should've talked about how I was going to the bathroom next to Michael Buffer ...).

That's better than my celebrity experience, which equals approximately zero. :)

You are so cool!
I am glad you didn't tell us about going to the bathroom next to Michael Bluffer only because I don't know who he is : )

Sounds like a pretty fun job! Seems Michael whatchamacallit confused us all!

That's a really good celeb experience! It was long too, not like my 2 minutes with Michael Jordan...wait that sounds bad.

Boring or not, at least Boyz II Men were friendly for having to spend a game with them.

I met ex-prez Ronald Reagan back in the day, it was a quick 'hi, how ya doing' type of meeting. Still interesting to see him in person though.
