It is said that everyone gets 15 minutes of fame at some point in their life. Since the following wouldn't really be considered fame per say, I have decided my overall fame bucket probably consists of several tidy little 15 second increments of fame.
Although I am not quite sure how many of these increments I have used up so far, it can't be very many since I live in relative obscurity. There was the time, at 12 years old, when my brother and I placed third in the Oakville 4th of July Raft Race down the Black River, and maybe the time I was quoted in the local paper because the ambulance had to be called after my father had a run in with one of the cows on our farm. (I think I used the word 'scary', cause that is the go to word for the media). I am sure there were others, but I am drawing a blank right now.
One 15 second, fame nugget did come this past Saturday however, when I was featured in the inaugural post of the new Discovering Dad 'Spotlight on Dad's' interview series.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
