I met Brigett Bardot on our beach. She was wearing a bikini. She wrapped her arms round me and gave me a huge hug and a long lingering kiss. The next thing I knew my Mother was shouting,'' if you don't get up you'll miss the train and be late for school''............do dreams count?
In the real world I have met several. One I will not mention by name was so arrogant I assumed for a while all famous people were prats. My mate nearly planted him he was so rude.
We get some coming round here off famous TV shows. They are OK but you always feel they have the opinion they know best. It must be something to do with pretending to be someone your not every day of your life.
The nicest guy I ever met (and his reputation for being awkward would suggest otherwise) was Seve Ballesteros........
My dear old Mum loved watching golf on TV. She was ga ga about Seve. I got so sick of hearing how wonderful he was, so I took her to Lytham St Annes in 1988, to watch a practise day for the Open.
It was beautiful weather.
We had to find Seve and follow him round of course.
He was walking up a fairway and his caddy came near to where we were were standing.
Unexpectedly my Mother asked the caddy if Seve would come across and talk to her. The caddy was unsure, but said he'd ask. To my surprise he came over. He chatted to my Mum as if they were long standing friends. He was polite, cheerful and very complimentary to her.
My Mother was over the moon, I was gobsmacked.
She told Seve he was going to win it......he won it.
I'm not a golf fan, but it gave my Mother so much pleasure we went to Glen Eagles next. It was a good day out even for a non golf fan. We stayed in a hotel up there and it was beautiful.
I'm so glad we did this for my Mother.
Seve is probably the one who stands out the most due to his manners and time for his ordinary fans.
My mate met Robert Plant outside our local a couple of years back. He sat and chatted with him and he told me he is a real gentleman. I missed him unfortunately.
