Brush with Greatness? Almost.
We had just paid our admission to the museum, and were going into one of the theaters for a presentation, when out of the corner of my eye, I saw something that made me stop in my tracks. I turned to look, but there were people standing in the way. I quietly removed my phone from my pocket, and started to make my way through the crowd.
I was nervous. I knew that this could be one of those "life altering encounters", and I knew that taking a picture was probably not polite, or appropriate. But decorum and rules aside - I was taking this picture.
Knowing that I only had one shot at this, I walked slowly behind and snapped the picture without being seen, then shoved my phone back into my pocket. I entered the theater and sat down next to my wife. She asked me where I disappeared to. I told her I needed to take a picture. She's knew well enough not to ask why.
Imagine my disappointment as I looked more closely at the picture. Not just the blurry quality, but the subject. It turned out that it was a woman with a mohawk wearing fatigues. Don't get me wrong, I have no problems with women with mohawks and fatigues, although the fanny pack strapped to her leg was a little disarming. No, the problem was that she was not who I was hoping for.
But in my defense, I feel her shirt was a little bit misleading.
I guess I'll just have to keep waiting and watching...
But mark my words: Before I die, I will take a picture of one of the Three Nephites.
