I saw a local celebrity of sorts today!

When I went to CVS pharmacy to get my prescriptions refilled, I saw a guy standing at the counter dealing with the pharmacist. He was a dwarf, about four feet tall; if you've seen Peter Dinklage (you might remember him from such films as "The Station Agent" and "Elf"), he's got the same condition. Achondroplastic dwarfism, I think it's called, but don't quote me on that. And he was wearing a suit tailor-made for him. I wondered if he was Houston City Councilman Joe Roach; I read a newspaper article once, and he looks like that. Then I heard the pharmacist call him "Mr. Roach". Wow, it was him!

I didn't speak to him or anything; I figured he probably didn't want to be bothered. Anyway, what was I going to say? "Hi, Mr. Roach! I, uh... read an article about you once! You're a dwarf!" Eeeh, no.
