Ketchup With Us #16

Today’s KWU preamble will be short and sweet. Mel and I are talking about celebrity encounters. Have you ever met someone famous? I’ve racked up a few big names over the years … and I have a prized stack of pictures somewhere to prove it. Some of them (such as Donny & Marie, Siskel & Ebert and Kelsey Grammar) I’ve already written about here and others (such as Katie Couric, Hugh Jackman & Renee Zellweger) I have not.

But I decided to go with someone unconventional today.

I met this charming actress years ago in New York after seeing her in a play entitled August: Osage County.  (It won the Tony that year, by the way). As soon as she walked onto the stage, I recognized her (uncultured buffoon that I am). And I was giddy to have the opportunity to take this picture.


That’s me with Kimberly Guerrero.

Don’t remember her? Perhaps this clip will jog your memory.

For a quick explanation of this link-up, click here. In short, Mel and I will post a picture or video with a writing prompt on the 1st and 15th of every month. You can write your entry in any form. We love creativity. And, with each prompt, we’ll feature a writer from the previous link-up. Which reminds me …

Our esteemed Ketchup With Us Featured Writer for today is …

‘KETCHUP WITH US’ – Prompt #16

In 57 words or less, tell us about a “celebrity encounter.” (We’ll let you interpret those terms however you like.) And, if you can, include a picture. 


Are you still here? Fine. Here’s a bonus picture from when I shed the costume. It looks like I had to pee pretty badly, but I didn’t. What a spaz.

  3. Pat was a great sport! Beside, how many opportunities did he get to have his photo taken with a life-size Heinz bottle.

  4. I’d like to buy a vowel and two consonants please. “O” “M” “G”! That’s funny. That’s really, really funny. I’m glad Pat was nice and not rotten tomatoes. *rim shot* 😉

  5. That is awesome! I have always heard he is really nice.

  6. You “traveling” photog wasn’t half bad. 🙂
