Almost Famous

When Keith was really little, he met Michael Jackson. In fact, MJ's people asked Keith to be in a music video with the star himself. But Keith had no idea who Jacko was and so he was passed upon.

When I was little, I met Dizzy Gillespie in an airport. He sat me on his lap while talking to a crowd of people. I had no idea who he was and therefore burst into tears. Later my brother explained to me that he was the man in the documentary we watched on the plane. Oops.

We have friends who are related to Real World stars, and I'm sure I'm within 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, but Lili has yet to have her "star" moment, though she does a pretty good impression of Mr. Gillespie:

now we just have to teach her to moonwalk
