Brush With Greatness II 

A number of years ago I was a guest at a classmate's bachelor party. Kevin Spacey was a friend of his and also attended. There were powders, there were liquids there was vegetable matter. At one point four of us, including Mr. Spacey decided to honor the bridegroom by dropping our trousers and mooning him. It just seemed like the thing to do. Just at the moment we grabbed our ankles a flash bulb lit the room, but the evening had progressed to the point where everybody just thought it was funny and a number of pictures were taken.

Somewhere out there is a picture of me cheek to cheek with Kevin Spacey. It's not the persistent speculation as to his sexual orientation that makes this a somewhat uncomfortable memory. And I live in a town in which the mayor was elected despite the existence of naked, drunken pictures.

I don't know. It's just not how I expected to be remembered.
