My 1.7 Seconds with a Famous Person - Michael

We have had more than our fair share of famous people come through here.  We have had Representatives from Congress (lots of them, actually), Senators (yup, lots of them, as well), heads of state (there are over 45 nations represented on the compound), and a few famous and infamous media reporters (Oliver North and that guy from the Rolling Stones).  Sparsely scattered in their midst are a few entertainers.  One such visitor was Nathalie Cole, daughter of the late Nat King Cole.  She came to sing a few songs, promote a movie, and get her picture taken with me.  I was glad to help out.  It took much more time to walk up and turn to face the camera than the actual staging of the photo.  It could not have been much more than 1.7 seconds in total.  After all, there were about a hundred other folks lined up to get their photo with her, too.  So there it is, my moment with a famous person, and she did not even ask for my autograph...

Yes, it did require me to make great sacrifices, but my public needed me.
