Singing a solo would be one that I can't ever see myself doing...unless karaoke counts.

Who is your famous person?

I never should have sung a solo and never will again. Every year when I was a kid I seemed to get sucked into solos and duets for the church Christmas play. I should never have even been in the children's choir.

Minor celebrities are all I've met ... Robert Novak, Bryant Gumbel, Mary Pope Osborne, etc. I got to interview a lot of people at that level of "fame" through journalism classes and internships in college.

Sadly, all of them are probably less widely known than Matt and Jeff Hardy, aka The Hardy Boyz, with whom I went to high school. :)

And Clint Dempsey! Matt reminded me. :)
