What is your lame claim to fame?

My dad once sold souvenirs at an Elvis concert in TX. (he always told people he WORKED for Elvis after that)

Ha, similar to mine. My dad worked security at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis and was on Elvis' personal detail for his last concert before his passing.

This past summer I was standing a few feet away from Butch "Eddie Munster" Patrick.

I also once got a book signed by Daniel "Lemony Snicket" Handler, but instead of signing either one of those names, he just wrote "Don't read this."

This year at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, I sat in the same row as Jill Solloway and Hannah Gadsby.

There is a 3 second clip of me at an Al concert on his A&E Biography.

I share my birthday with Al...does that count?

Otherwise, I guess my biggest claim to fame was winning a bodhran competition at a local Irish festival. I guess it's something!

I've shared this story nefore, but in honor of his passing last night, I'll bring it up again. I randomly met Ric Ocasek when I was 7.

My family was vacationing in LA, and we got lost. The bus stop we were at was outside a record store he was doing a signing or something at, and it was done and he came out. He heard us and came up and asked about our accents because he recognized them. We were from Fitchburg, Mass and the Cars played a lot in that area when they were getting started and just getting big (The video for Touch and Go was even shot at Whalom Park which was just outside of Fitchburg in Lunenburg).

We talk for a bit, and then Ric, in full 80s rock star get up mind you (The shades, the jacket, and all) gets on the bus with us and starts pointing things out.

I'm reading a lot of stuff today that he was such a nice guy, and yeah, pretty cool 7 year old me got to experience that. :)
You have quickly thought up such matchless phrase?
