Man this is a small town

Last night I went to a function, but apparently the wrong one, and ran into [Bush cabinet member] and spouse. I met [Bush cabinet member] on my way out, after seeing through the window that folks were going into the other building to the other function that I had intended to go to. But before I could leave I had to ditch my wine glass, so I had to head back into the crowd, and then [Bush cabinet member] introduced himself, his wife and friend. He’s a charming gentleman. Thank goodness for name tags because, I was looking at his tag before and thinking “that name, that face, they look familiar.” Anyway what did I and one of the nation’s top mover and shaker talk about? Dogs and charitable giving.
I’m hoping that one day I’ll wander into a function and chat up George Clooney about fresh basil and simple pasta dishes.
