I’ve put up some of the photos of me with famous people, but some of my best experiences of ICRS were the writers and hosts that I got to meet. This is Mary Nichelson, she’s a writer, we met her our first day in Atlanta. Our family flew all night on a red-eye from San Diego to get to Atlanta Sunday morning. I was still pretty new to being “Samuel L. Collins” the character and I wasn’t quite comfortable yet. Mary and her family showed up. She has a son a little younger than I am and it was nice to meet him and believe me there’s nothing I would have liked to do more than run off and play. But I knew my job that day was to do interviews. So I rushed off to have a seat and talk with his mom. When I talked to my dad about it later, he said I should always take time to enjoy the moment of being 13. He said it would have been okay to play for a few minutes. Next time I’m doing interviews and a young person stops by, I’m going to enjoy being 13.
More fun from ICRS
