Life 101 – Celebrity spotting!

So, I’m walking through Central Park today with my brother, Brian, and sister-in-law, Sandra, who are visiting from South Carolina. A guy enthusiastically stopped my brother and said, “Hey, you work at the GameStop in Lexington, don’t you?” It reminded me of a joke my grandfather used to tell about Joe Jones from Jenkinsville. The punchline is that Joe walks out on the Vatican balcony with the Pope and someone from the crowd asks, “Whose the guy in the white hat with Joe Jones?” Today’s Central Park walk taught me something about celebrity. It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it. Yes, I was proud of my brother for being recognized, but the real testament was that the man took the time to stop and say he comes into that store because of Brian. Brian Littlefield, my brother, has taken his video game passion and turned it into a not just a job, but a career that he loves. We should all work at being the star of what we do.
