I would like to think that I don't get starstruck when faced with a celebrity, even a minor one, but today I excelled myself.
A lady came into the office on Friday to discuss some business-related stuff. She was really lovely and chatty and at the time I thought I had met her before but just couldn't place where: it might have been just walking dogs on the Common or something through my work with Greyhound Gap.
Thinking it might have been the latter and it would have been rude of me not to acknowledge the fact, I mentioned it to her when she rang this morning. We chit-chatted and giggled about our joint lack of organisation skills for a while and then I said:
"I'm sure we've met before but I can't place where"
In a quiet little voice, she replied "Oh, I do some stuff on the telly"
I was mortified. How could I have possibly been so crass!? I apologised profusely and she took it in very good spirit and said it happened all the time. She even invited me round for a cup of tea!
A lovely lady!
I'm still embarrassed though.
