It’s Slick and Mick! What are the odds?
Welcome back to a regular feature we like to call, “What are the chances?”
Think of the odds against you going out one day and running into Bill Clinton or Mick Jagger. I’ve never come across either of them, and yet, they go to catch a soccer match and find each other.
This is almost as amazing as a couple of weeks ago, when President Barack Obama ran into Paul McCartney.
Me, I always wonder what kind of small talk these celebrities make when they are together.
“Mick Jagger! Hey, my old vinyl copy of “Sticky Fingers” is kinda scratchy. Can you get me another one?”
“I’ll try, Bill. That’s from 40 years ago, but I’ll look around my boxes of old junk in my flat. Say, this is embarrassing Bill, but I left my wallet back in the hotel. Can you lend me $20 so I can get some cheese nachos and Mountain Dew?”
“Sure Mick, but remember to send it back with the album. I’m not made of money… You know, Mick, my very favorite song is ‘Honky Tonk Woman.’ ‘Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues… I later did the same in New York City…’”
“No Bill, it goes, ‘I laid a divorcee in New York City…’”
“No way, Mick! Can you really say that on the RADIO?”
