big Fat Liar.

I really am.
So, here it is.
I have been a vendor at The Old Salem Horse Show for the last two weeks.  A beautiful farm that I hear used to be owned by Paul Newman.

All week I watched the very talented Jessica Springsteen ride and qualify. Although I don't know a lot about the equestrian world it isn't hard to see that Jessica has an amazing seat and that she is quite talented. It doesn't hurt that her horse is probably the best that money can buy...

By all accounts on the horse show circuit, she and her famous parents are very well liked. She is a highly respected equestrian that may qualify for the 2012 Olympics.


OK, so I knew that her Dad comes to most of her "big" stuff and I expected to catch a glimpse of "the boss."

But, I became so busy that I kinda forgot about any sightings. I was working with a customer when I noticed that everyone outside by booth was turning and staring as someone walked by and I realized that it was BRUCE! He was walking how celebrities do- fast and not making eye contact. Everyone noticed him and they all left him alone. Very cool. I figured he was on his way to the warm-up ring to see his daughter.
But no, he was checking out the shopping!  All of sudden, mid sentence with my customer I noticed that he was in my booth! He picked up a hat and looked at some leather bracelets and then...
He moved on.
Normally, if anyone comes in my booth and touches anything I engage them in conversation. BUT, I didn't want to be rude to my customer  AND I didn't want to be "uncool" and bother "the boss."

I may see him again this weekend. I am determined to sell him something because...
I am not so cool :)
