Exciting News!

Today I was at Lee's Craft Store on 57th Street picking up some materials for one of my workshops when this little girl ran up to me. She was about 2 years old and super cute. She wanted to show me some toy she'd found so I looked and said how nice it was etc. Then I looked around and didn't see a parent nearby so I asked her who she was there with. She said "mommy." So I asked if she knew where mommy was. She took off running and I followed along just to be sure she wasn't lost. After a few turns she ran up to a well dressed looking woman who I assumed was either an adoptive parent or a very well-to-do nanny since the girl was black and the woman was white. She thanked me for helping to find her little one and it somehow came up that I liked kids and babysat. We kind of hit it off and had a nice chat and she asked if I'd be interested in sitting for her kids some time. I told her I'd be happy to if I was free. So she turns to a woman standing near by and asks her to get my information. I thought this was kind of strange, I mean there are wealthy people in the city but most people don't bring personal assistants around with them. So I gave the person my info and said to call anytime. As I was saying goodbye to the lady and her little girl who had told me her name was Zahara, it suddenly clicked!!!! I had been speaking to Angelina Jolie!!!! I totally didn't recognize her until she was walking out the door!!! So I guess we'll see if she ever calls. Oh man, that would be a fun time.

  3. That is not very nice. My work doesn't believe in April Fools Day and they got me all conditioned to not expect anything.

  4. You're right. I'm sorry. I didn't even get any pleasure out of it. I now vow to never again post a blog on April 1st. I did not have fun, it's just not so fun to trick people.

  5. Sorry, I put her up to it. The whole internet puts up fake blogs on April Fool's, I promise!

  6. Although, you do meet celebrities fairly regularly, and you are the luckiest person I know, so it would be believable!
