Famous To Me

Maddie spent the weekend with my mom, in Memphis. You know what that means, right?

PAR-TAY!!

We started our weekend on Friday night, with a date after work, to Waffle House. We decided that when the employees are as strung out as most of the customers, at 11:30 on a Friday night, it's not necessarily a good thing. But I'll save that for another post.

On Saturday, we went out to dinner. Just the two of us. It was awesome. No worrying about whether the restaurant will have anything for Maddie to eat. No worrying about disturbing other customers. No 4 year old. At a grown up restaurant.

Real food. Real conversation. I really am an adult.

The highlight of my night was while we were waiting for a table. I spotted him. Is that. . .? Oh, man, I can't believe it.

I turned to Justin, whispered to him, "Look- right over there. Do you see him? That's Jeff Galloway." Please don't google his name- it'll kinda ruin the point of the story.

"Who?"

"Oh, you know. That guy that. . . "

I kept looking over at him, trying to gather the courage to talk to him. He seemed really nice. But, living in Nashville, one thing that we pride ourselves on, is acting like we don't care if we see someone famous. We try to let all of the stars eat in peace. Unless, of course, it's George Strait. Then, I'm all over him. No question about it.

He stood 3 feet away from me. Alone. And I didn't even talk to him. Gah.

So, when I was talking to Justin about him, and all that he accomplished, I mentioned that I was going to put it on my blog. He claimed that no one would know who he is.

Prove him wrong- Do you know who Jeff Galloway is? No cheating. That means no googling. There is absolutely no prize to go to the winner.

We just had a date weekend. I'm broke. But, you will have the satisfaction of proving my husband wrong. And, that's priceless.

I have no idea who Jeff Galloway is. Does he make these?

First of all, I'm so out of the real-world loop that I would doubt the presence of Tom Cruise himself.

And I've no idea who, um, whoever it was that you saw, is.

Ummmm. Jeff Galloway...the RUNNER?!? Loved his books. Haven't yet hit the pavement though. It's still an option.

I am currently following his training program. I know who he is, and you SO should of talked to him!

I don't know who he is. But I know Joey Galloway is a receiver for the TB Buccaneers who got oodles of points for my fantasy football team!

I have no idea who Jeff Galloway is. But I haven't watched TV in years, and I don't listen to popular music.

If he was an author or politician, there would probably be at least name recognition.

Does he play golf, no wait, that is Galloway golf course. Sorry Chels, Justin wins this one. I have no idea. By the way, Maddie did not come to Memphis...didn't she tell you?? Garammm lives in collevill, not Memphis. Just ask her.

Bren said...

Sorry, I have no clue who Jeff Galloway is. But...I'm glad you had an awesome grown up date night!

Sarah O. said...

Jeff Galloway? Eeep. I have no idea. I have a nagging feeling I'm going to feel REALLY stupid when I find out, though!

Irene said...

That is so cool!!! I knew exactly who he was, even though I read your above post first. I would probably be like you though, too scared to say anything! But I am sure he would have been thrilled to know how much he helped you and your running!

Melissa said...

I have no idea who he is! We lived in Nashville for a while and it was hilarious trying to be nonchalant about seeing someone famous. It killed me every time! Loved it!

OK - LOVE Waffle House. Had NO idea who Jeff Galloway was, but then googled him. Can't believe he would be in a Waffle House! WOO HOO!!! Love you blog!

Oh yeah... and I used to live in Nashville at 20th and Grand... and I'd see all sorts of famous people around there - and not-so-famous but really interesting people after 10 pm at the IHOP around the corner :)
