Famous People I almost met:
Several years ago, when my husband and I were house-hunting, we looked at a little house in Litchfield Connecticut. it was an eyebrow colonial – isn’t that an adorable term? I think it means that the second floor ceiling is at about eyebrow height. You could see through a few (half) of the stairs, and the kitchen floor was so slanted, that when you went from the refrigerator to the stove, it was hard not to break into a run down the slope. But it was a very very nice neighborhood.
A few months later we read in the paper that the next door neighbors had hosted a democratic fundraising event, and that the Clintons had stopped by. So if we had bought that house, and I hadn’t cracked my head getting out of the shower, or fallen through the stairs, or tumbled down the kitchen hill, I would have met Bill and Hillary.
There was a rather large hedge between the two houses, but towards the back there was a thin spot, so I am pretty sure I would have been able to squeeze through.
