Wana Race?

I'm a graphic designer and I work in a sign shop. Yea, I know what your probably thinking. "Wow you must lead the life of danger and intrigue." Well, your wrong. Once in a blue moon I do get to photoshop a grotesque mole off of someones face but thats only on a good day. Up to this point the most exciting thing that has ever happened here is when the Subway next door caught on fire. That was kind of invigorating. Ickey Woods has come in a few times but he never did the shuffle. Today however was a bit different. Today we had an Olympic Gold Medalist order some posters. Believe it or not this is the first Olympian that we've had in our store. Her name was Mary Wineberg and she won gold in the Womens 4 x 400m Relay. Why is having an Olympian in the store exciting for me? I'm not sure why, but it was so shut up. My mind is obviously that of an 8 year old because immediately I thought to myself, "Hey want to race around the building," and "next time you come in can you bring your gold medal?" So anyhow, thats where the story ends, we didn't race and I don't have her gold medal for sale on eBay. Other than me, who's the most exciting person that you've met.

I have met YoYo Ma! For a cellist, that is like meeting the Pope.
You might be able to beat him in a race. =)

There is no one more exciting than The Dan.

The Dan can unscramble an egg.

The Dan was born in a log cabin that he built with his bare hands.

The Dan is capable of photosynthesis.

The Dan is a stunt double for Optimus Prime.

Steve, these words spoken about any other, I'd have to laugh at. But, what you say here seems to fit the one I know as "The Dan."
