Celebrity at work tonight!

You know when you say hi to someone, how the hi is different depending on who you say it to? Like if it's someone you know or not.

I was having some trouble with one of the freezers at work tonight, so I had to call the manager and get him to come down about an hour before we closed. As he arrived I said hi to him. There was this kid right in front of my boss that thought I was talking to him, and then he looked at me as if he was waiting for me to say something else (probably because of the way I said hi.). I just gave him my best "customer smile" and walked past him to get to my manager and explain the problem. When the kid had gone my manger told me: "That's that kid that plays Mowgli at "Chat Noir"" (big theater in Oslo)
Me: "oh-kay..."
I had no idea who he was. He's even been in the local paper quite a few times, since he's (fairly) local. So maybe he thought I said hi the way I did because I recognized him...?
Even if I didn't know who he was though, it's kind of cool that we got a "celebrity" in the store... It's a small place, we take what we can get.

I used to know about a lot about celebrities, when I was a teenager, and I lived in Oslo. But it was still more the foreign ones, not the Norwegian ones. I even met a couple of celebrities when we lived in Oslo. My father works in television, and I got to go with a couple of times when he filmed some celebrities. I wish I had his job. He gets to travel the world.

By the way, it stopped raining... Kind of. It's snowing instead.
Bah... I'm ready for spring now please.

I bet your father has met some interesting people and seen some wonderful places - how lucky to have such a job.

I was once sitting beside a 'famous' footballer and didn't know it. He started to talk to me about some rather personal matters and I looked at him saying sorry do I know you? The look on his face was priceless and seemed to say how dare I not know who he was.
