Hey, isn't that...

This week’s assignment from the League: Hey, isn’t that…

I live in a rather small and secluded area, but I can think of at least one occasion that I've seen a celebrity out and about. Chelsea and I were driving back to her apartment, and we were stopped at a stop light. I was looking around as I usually do when we're stopped, when my gaze fell on the driver in the car next to us. Is that...it couldn't be..but I'm pretty sure it was...R. Lee Ermey. That's right, Gunnery Sergeant Hartman himself. I waved at him, trying to get his attention, but the man was focused on the road ahead, and never even glanced in my direction. Chelsea told me I was crazy, that it couldn't possibly be him, and I almost agreed with her. Then he pulled ahead of us, and I saw the numerous Marine Corps stickers adorning the back of his red Ford Escape.

I still swear I saw Leonardo Dicaprio in a Virginia Beach Barnes and Noble. I wasn't wearing my glasses, because I was waiting for Lenscrafters to finish making them, but I'm almost certain it was him. Being the shy teenager that I was, I didn't have to guts to actually go up and ask him though.

I've actually had several people confuse me for someone else. When I used to work on a charter fishing boat, one guy thought I was his brother. He and his wife were trying to figure out what in the world I was doing there, before they realized I was someone else. My mom was even fooled by a guy that was working as a waiter at one of the local restaurants. The next day she called me and asked how long I had been working there, and why I hadn't told her. I used to say I had a bunch of clones running around, maybe I wasn't joking around...

Over the years I've heard there is a slight resemblance between me and Dustin Diamond. You know, Screech, from Saved By The Bell.




Personally, I don't see it..
