#Scintilla13: Famous Names

Yesterday I wrote a fictional story for Scintilla. I'm switching over to real life for today's prompt.

B: Tell the story about something interesting (anything!) that happened to you, but tell it in the form of an instruction manual (Step 1, Step 2, Step 3….)

Step 1: Cringe at the fact that your full name is on your name badge when you start your new job.

Step 2: Smile and try not to roll your eyes at the customer in your checkout line who tells you Nicole Kidman is somewhere in the store. It's a stupid thing for them to say, but at least they didn't crack one of the many J.Lo jokes you've heard over and over again throughout the years.

Step 3: Pick your jaw up off the floor when Nicole Kidman really does walk up to your line to pay.

Step 4: Grin like a fool for the rest of the day.

    1. It's still something I think about now and then, and a fun story I never get tired of telling.

  2. Did Nicole offer up a stupid J. Lo joke? Don't tell me, I prefer to think she did to which you said, "You f#$ked Tom Cruise after he was crazy, bitch."

  3. She doesn't have people to do that stuff for her?

    1. I guess she doesn't. There was someone else with her, though I have no idea who it was.
