Robert Urich Made Me Smile

He laughed and said, "We survived a head-on collision."

My daughter and I went to a health expo. This was a great event for a lot of people. I did not realize entertainers were scheduled to arrivie after everyone had time to take in all the booths. My daughter knew, but didn't share this with me, since she wanted me to be surprised.

I decided to run to the rest room before the time I thought we would leave. I re-entered the exhibit hall and heard my daughter yell to me, "Watch out, Mom!" I turned quickly on the step and almost ran into Robert Urich, one of my favorite actors at that time. I almost knocked him down. He reached out and tried to catch me before I fell. I was so embarrassed.

He laughed and said, "We survived a head-on collision." With that, I forgot how red my face probably was.
He told me to have a nice day and headed in the opposite direction.
