Karen: OK, the title of this post is a bit mis-leading. But I did have a very unusual experience this morning. My husband and I had the day off, and decided to go have brunch at our favorite breakfast restaurant. We got to the place and saw it surrounded by police and were concerned, then we saw a whole herd of SUVs and secret service. We soon realized there had to be someone pretty important inside. As we approached the entrance, we were searched before we could go in. We soon discovered that Vice-President Joe Biden was inside!
Karen: We sat in a booth about 15 feet away from Biden. He was meeting with a group of women. They appeared to have been there awhile. We ordered, ate, and had just finished when he got up to leave. We hoped to get a couple of good pictures of the VP. But Biden being so outgoing, he went around and shook hands with folks and spoke to them. When he got to our booth he shook my husband Tom's hand, and asked his name, then said, "Do you still play?" which of course gave my hubby a big thrill. Then he shook my hand and I said it was an honor to meet him. He saw the iPhone in my other hand and grabbed it, gave it to his aide, and then put his arm around me, and bang! We got a photo with him! It was such a surreal moment. I hate to admit I was star-struck, but I was. What a totally unexpected event!
Karen: I shared the photo with Doug and he pointed out that Galactus' big noggin is sticking out on my shirt. So this might be the only time ever you had the VP and the Devourer of Worlds in a photo together!
