He looked a lot like Pauly Shore.
So I immediately texted my sister.
I quickly morphed into celebrity stalker mode. After some quick Internet searching, I learned that Pauly Shore actually was in town to perform at the Funny Bone Comedy Club that night.
So, Holy Crap! That really was Pauly Shore!
The girls and I headed back to the pool. I figured Pauly (if we work out at the same gym, that puts us on a first name basis) had left. But no --Pauly Shore was in the hot tub.
We made eye contact as I passed by & he smiled at me.
I got the girls back to the pool & was fully ready to go over & talk to him, but he disappeared.
In 3 seconds.
He completely vanished.
So that was the end of my momentary hobnobbing with a celeb.
