A funny follow-up to my previous post, that had completely washed out of my brains until moments ago, when for some inexplicable reason the theme to Get Smart made me remember:
About a year ago, Anne and I were driving home down Santa Monica near Highland in Hollywood. It was the beginning of afternoon rush hour traffic, so when I saw a person waiting to make a left from a side street, I stopped to let him go across in front of us. See, I try to do nice things like that, because I believe the world would be a much better place if everyone made an effort to do little things, like hold doors open, let people with fewer items cut in front in the checkout, say "thank you" . . . things like that.
Anyway, I stop to let this guy pull out across in front of us, and Anne says, "Dude! That's totally Fabio!"
"What? Where?!" I said.
"Driving the car you just let in front of us!"
I laughed, because Anne and I occasionally play the celebrity look alike game, too.
We were silent for a second or two, and we both realized that that the car was a Bentley, and the driver was, indeed, Fabio.
"Oh my god!" I said. "It really is Fabio!"
Anne and I decided that this momentous occasion warranted an immediate and vigorous high-five.
Fabio waved his hand at me in the universal "thank you," gesture, turned West onto Santa Monica, and drove into the Sunset. We continued East into our mundane, non-Fabio lives.
