an excess of water and fame

The backyard is a lake today. You can't drive into the park across the way, the creek's too high, maybe it's come up to the bridge. Pretty exciting weather for February. A few daffodils have poked through, thinking this was a spring deluge. Go back! You're gonna freeze!

When I drove up to our local polling place to vote in the primary, I saw Dan Keding getting into his car. (He's our local famous person, lives up the street and is a world famous story teller.) I got all excited and pretended like I would actually go up to him and ask him to tell the kids a story while they waited in the car with Khalil. Like I would even say hi. Celebrity makes me so nervous, I tend to shun anyone I think is famous. It's kind of silly. Billy has the opposite reaction. He talks to anyone famous he can find, just like they were anyone else. He doesn't want them to be lonely just because they're famous. Much more in line with the idea of the equality of humanity, I guess.
