Brush with a "celebrity"
The kids and I went to a baby shower yesterday. It was an evening event for families at a park. Ken Jennings was there with his family (link is to his official website). But I didn't realize that it was Ken Jennings. I was pushing the girls on the swings and he came over and was pushing one of his children. I was thinking, I know this guy. Was he one of my MTC teachers? Or maybe he is a famous Mormon. But I concluded that he was an MTC teacher and didn't talk to him. When they left I asked who he was and was informed that it was Ken Jennings. So then I was glad I hadn't asked about the MTC thing. But next time I see him I'll at least say congratulations and that I'm so jealous he was a guest on Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me.
