What would your reaction be if you met an "important" person like an actor?
I've met many. Living in Las Vegas while stationed at Nellis AFB I volunteered to work security at many events in Las Vegas for over a decade,
proceeds went towards charity or fund raising for squadron functions.
Also I had the priveledge of meeting more than a few during USO
tours, mostly comedians, country singers,
How did I react? depended on the situation. I once met a comedian/actor at a restaurant inside the Hard Rock before a UFC. I excused myself for
interupting while he was waiting for his food, introduced myself, and simply said "I'd like to thank you for what you do, and all the times you have
made me laugh. I'm not bothering you for an autograph or picture, just thanks for being who you are and doing what you do." He stood up, smiled and
shook my hand. Asked me what I did for a living. I answered. His food was being brought to him, and I told him and his guest that I hoped they
enjoyed their evening. I thought David Spade
was pretty cool.
I've met a few other famous people, too. They are most appreciative when you just tell them thanks for what they do, let them know you enjoy their
Montgomery & Gentry
put on an
awesome show for us troops while I was stationed at Ballad. They are country duo, with some good music, in my opinion. One of their songs were
interupted by some nearby mortors during an attack less than half a mile away. They said some choice words and re-started the song. They refused to
stop the show. That was more than cool in my book.
is one tall man. I'm 5'11 and his belt was a little
below my shoulders. Great personality, and one hell of a life history, if anyone is familiar with him, his ex wife shot him a few times.
Doesn't always wear those glasses, and they are more part of his image than
necessity. And he is hilarious. Myself and a few dozen other firefighters out for an evening at a club in Las Vegas ended up hanging out with him
and his party for about two hours. He is very knowledgeable about a lot of things, and very funny, imo.
Those are some of the famous people I have met. There a more, but when I was working security or showing people to their seats for a boxing or UFC
fight it was business, not pleasure. But, I did get to shake some famous hands. And some hands of some extremely attractive women, in which case I
tried to act professional, but I know I had a huge smile on my face.
They are regular people, like you or me, they just do something different than what we do. They are entertainers.
thought I would share,
