My brush with celebrity

So we were having some great steaks for (pre-)Christmas dinner with my wife’s family, and towards the end of the dinner a young woman practically throws herself at the table behind us. I’m thinking she’s a little nuts, and take a glance on what the hell is going on. Then I take another glance.

Dude, that’s LL Cool J! Sitting. Right. Next. To. Us. Holy SHIT!

I’ve been listening to hip hop for almost 20 years, and I’ve got one of the pioneers of hip hop not farther than 4 feet from me. How cool is that!

He was having a good time with, I assume, some of his relatives. Apparently he lives not too far from the restaurant, and goes there all the time.

Next time I go there, I’ll be bringing my LL Cool J albums with me 🙂
