Famous By Association
The Sister works on Capitol Hill, where she's a staffer to a Venerated and Powerful Congressional Bigwig.
The other day she called me at work.
"Hey, guess what!" she said, excitedly. "I was on tv today!"
Apparently, Venerated and Powerful Congressional Bigwig gave a speech before Congress, and it was broadcasted on CSPAN.
She showed me the video rerun.
In it, Venerated and Powerful Congressional Bigwig is giving a speech, standing at the podium. And you can clearly see the Sister sitting behind him.
Yes, for many people, being on CSPAN hardly qualifies as "being on tv."
But to me, she's a movie star!! I'm so proud of her, I'm burning copies for all of our relatives! #
