Today’s Actual Fully-Real Conversation with a Semi-Celebrity

I was standing at one end of the Dog Park, entranced in a dog who was staring at an empty hole. Standing next to the dog, staring down at the hole, was Dann Florek — Capt. Donald Cragen from Law & Order: SVU.

Me: Your dog?

Dann Florek: Yup.

Me: What’s he looking for?

Dann Florek: Gopher.

Me: Has he ever caught one before?

Dann Florek: Nope.

Me: Oh.

The reality of Celebrity. Served up daily. Just for you.

    He had two or three. The one looking for the gopher was a mix between some kind of collie and a dachtsund… I think. A mix.

    I always expected the ol’ Cap’n to use one word answers. I’m glad to see he really does!

    What’s up with his eyes in that picture? They keep following me around. I feel like I need to go out and solve a crime or something.

    I’d say this man needs to embrace his celebrity and get a dogwalker. I’d suggest someone but I’m not going to because I see she’s trying to stuff the ballot here, that darn Trish! Woops. 😉

    For those of us in the hinterland, Hollywood seems really glamorous. However, the full tilt magic of it doesn’t really register until you read something like this. Wow.
