How I approach celebrities

Today, Lauren and I were eating at the Coffee Pot Restaurant in Sedona when Kelly Ripa visited with the ladies at the table next to us. I immediately twittered the event. Yesterday, however, during my ride in West Sedona, one of the leaders in the Race Across America (RAAM) pulled up next to me at a stoplight. Not knowing who he was, I quickly scanned his rig and profile and dismissed him. I easily pulled ahead and whipped up the next few hills. I stopped half an hour later on the 89A road up to Flagstaff where I was going to meet Jason and the gang to go swimming. That's when the rider passed me followed by his 3 team vehicles. By the time I looked him up on the internet he was already in Utah. His name is Dani Wyss and he's a total animal on the bike. Of course, since he doesn't breakfast with Regis Philbin he's not even on my radar. Geez, I need to check my priorities.
