I really enjoy heading out to the Farmers Markets. The people watching factor is one element I truly enjoy, particularly the early morning, well thrown together fashions ! I secretly admire people who can do this; mismatched colors, well loved scarf, polka dot bag, gorgeous!
This month at Veg Out St Kilda whilst admiring the passing crowd, I was pleased to recognise the casual sauntering style of the truly clever Brian Nankervis.
For those of us who are Rockwiz fans, or dedicated ABC listeners, Brian is a most witty and clever soul whom I admire greatly.
Not wanting to let an opportunity pass, I threw out a compliment across my stall to acknowledge I was a fan; “ Love your new Friday radio show…”
He responded with a wry smile, replied “That’s what we like to hear” and continued on by slightly distracted. Reading my little sign on the way past he was tempted back to purchase a bag of the Parmesan Oatcakes, much to my delight!
I was truly busting to take a photo of my famous customer with bag in tow, however the groupie instinct in me failed and I couldn’t muster the courage. I wanted to tell him how he makes me laugh, how I love the voice of his co presenter on the Friday Inquisition,(and his!!) and that he just makes me happy! How does one do that so unprepared!
Lost opportunites aside, I was quietly chuffed with my celebrity sale, and watched him walk away satisfied I had touched the Life Of Brian!
