This thread got me thinking: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=1192620#post1192620 How close have you been to fame and fortune? For my other half, Goldie Hawn was his baby sitter. For me it was nearly decking Sarah Jessica Parker (see above thread). Or the many opportunities living in the DC area of State Department or White House dinners in my younger years. The best was when I spent a couple weeks out on the Cape. Met a guy in my stay. He asked if I wanted to have the 4th of July festivities over on his relatives place on the Cape. Turned out to be Patrick Kennedy and the party at Hyannisport Kennedy compound!
