Well for those of you who guessed that #2 was a lie - you were right. I was never a cheerleader in High School. I never played any sports at all.
But for TL here is the Paul McCartney story: It was the summer of 1979 and my parents and I were just about to head home from our summer vacation in Montauk, Long Island. We saw a fudge shop within a few minutes of leaving the hotel and decided to stop and get some fudge. Inside the fudge shop was Paul McCartney, his wife Linda, and baby James who was a toddler of about 2 at the time. Linda was holding the baby propped up on the counter and was chatting away with the person working behind the counter. My parents approached Paul and struck up a conversation with him. So there I stood for about a half hour next to Paul, Linda and James McCartney and the funny thing is at my age of 12 I really did not fully appreciate the importance of that. I actually had heard of the Beatles as well as Paul's new group - Wings, but quite honestly I had no idea I was standing next to a legend. I amused myself watching the baby try to grab stuff from the counter. Eventually, we bought some boxes of fudge and Paul autographed the top of the boxes for us. After we got home and ate the fudge, I carefully cut the box tops off and preserved them in a box in my room that I kept all my hidden treasures in. When I moved from my parents house this box was left behind. I don't know what ever became of the box. Of course, in 1979 there was no way to have known that one day in the future we would have E-BAY and those box tops would be able to fetch a small fortune. If I only knew then what I know now.
And as for #3 - being in a movie...I had a small non-speaking role in an NYU student project film.

QSY that's a cool story. It's sad about the box and whoever found it might have made a few quid, but they won't have the memory eh
