Hollywood rule #156: Never gossip about anyone famous anywhere in LA, because you never know who's listening
So, yesterday, my friend Beth came to visit me for lunch at my work. The last time I'd seen her, it was in Novemberish, right after my terrible run-in with the Television Judge Who Must Not Be Named. I'd pretty much blocked the experience from my memory and had even forgotten his name, so I'd not thought about it since.
So, we're standing in the cafeteria jabbering about that experience and how funny it was and what a jerk the guy was, and BLAH BLAH BLAH. We're speaking loudly because the place is noisy and we're laughing loudly, because that's what we do when we're together. So Beth says, "I looked all over the internet trying to find a place to leave nasty comments about Judge Joe Brown!" I said, "Actually, it wasn't Joe Brown, it was the other one..." and the words are still out there, hanging out of my mouth like a comic word bubble, and I turn around, and WHO IS RIGHT BEHIND ME but my apparent unintended karmic arch-nemesis, the Judge.
Of all the lunch places, in all of town, he had to be in mine. The chances of this happening were unimaginably low, but there he was.
That'll teach me a lesson...or teach him a lesson. I haven't decided which yet.
Oh my! That is a really hard way to learn a lesson! Lisa | 03.21.06 - 9:08 pm | #
That's not a lesson, that's a bonus. BO-NUS. tifanie | 03.21.06 - 9:34 pm | #
I empathize with you. That has only happened to me once, when I was young. I learned my lesson! Ma | 03.22.06 - 6:29 am | #
Please...when using the word "jugde" to describe a TV judge, use the word lightly. Shawn Jackson | 03.22.06 - 11:14 am | #
