When I worked at Walt Disney World, I encountered a few celebrities. The only time I made a legit fool of myself was at one of the hotels. I was working the front desk early on a Sunday morning. I had ducked down to organize some of my forms or something, and I became aware that someone was standing in front of the desk. I stood up, started to say good morning, and froze up when I saw that I was face to face with a very famous woman whose work I happen to admire a great deal. My mind ground to a halt, and I stammered at her for what felt like a half hour.
The hope is that someday she’ll want to make a TV show out of one of my books, and we can share a laugh about it. That’s highly unlikely though, and if I did end up in a meeting with her I’d probably just start stammering again.
