I went to high school at Classen High School in Oklahoma City. I was a year behind Wayne Coyne, who is now the lead singer for the Flaming Lips, a semi obscure band who nobody has really ever heard of, but who apparently has won a Grammy and is drooled over for their originality. (Or maybe I'm just bitter.)
Okay.. here is what happened. My daughter happens to have heard of them and asked me to see if I could wrangle her free tickets to their concert. Okie dokie.. so I call up my best friend from high school who was married to the original lead singer and brother of Wayne Coyne, who is the lead singer now, and ask her if she can get my kid in to the concert. Sure thang babe.. so my kid goes to the concert, free of charge.
After the concert is over, she meets Mr. Coyne and says, "My mom went to high school with you." Wayne looks at her, and says gravely, "Wow, she must be really old."
There ya have it. Insulted by a celebrity.
Someday, if ever I see him face to face, I will kick him in the shin.
