Our town had been recently destroyed by an F-5 tornado. It had destroyed my grade school, the day before school was supposed to start. Once things finally got settled we started sharing another elementary school. They went to school from 7-12 and we went 12-5, it was awful getting home in the winter when it was pitch black. Around Thanksgiving they finally had some mobile classrooms ready for us.
Luckily there was a really large grassy field close to our school where they were able to set up mobile classrooms which we then went to school in until our school was rebuilt. When we were making that transition the local news station wanted to come interview us and show what things were like.
Of all of the classes they picked my 4th grade class to come into. Before they came, we were instructed to pretend like we were working and to not look up and wave to the camera.
Well in 4th grade I was a serious rule-keeper; the thought of getting in trouble or not obeying terrified me a bit. So the cameras came in, I could sense the camera man and reporter walking around filming, but I could not see them, as I was very intently looking down pretending to work hard on my paper.
That evening when my family gathered around to watch the evening news there were all of my classmates, looking and smiling at that camera and there was the top of my head.
So my first part of my 15 minutes of fame all belong to the top of my head.... kind of fitting since my head and my graying hair is still one of those random blog posts that gets a ton of hits. Guess my head is famous.
Have you had part of your 15 minutes of fame?
