The Most Famous Celebrity in the World Loves Wasabi

Unlike Heather the Great, I’ve met only a few famous people. I use the word “met” very loosely.

I “swept by” Kevin Bacon when I worked at Disney World.
I handled The View lady’s luggage.
I’ve seen Janet Jackson’s butt walking down a corridor.
I stood in line at a hockey game with some famous golfer.
I said, “HI!” to Coolio.
I ordered popcorn at a movie theater next to The Fonz.

A very short list.

But 2 weeks ago, I added one more to my list who is, by far, more mega-famous that those listed above.

I was invited to the opening of Busch Gardens’ Safari of Fun featuring the Sesame Street characters in March. I took Claire along and saw Maria and Caroline with their kids as well.

The rides are are super fun. The tree house is super awesome. The massive trampoline/bounce house is a kid’s dream. The splash park is one of the best I’ve ever seen.

It’s completely worth going to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay just to have your little kids spend the day at Safari of Fun. Super Awesome: until the end of 2010, kids 5 and under get in free. HECK YEAH!

But the day I took Claire to Media Day at Safari of Fun, we got to meet Elmo.

The real live monster puppet, Elmo.


Like, the one on TV, in movies, in videos.

THE Elmo.

And it kind of freaked Claire out seeing a big black man with Elmo’s voice sticking his hand up Elmo’s butt. But as you’ll see in the video, she got over that pretty quickly.

I, on the other hand, am still freaked out in a good way.

The sound wasn’t working for me 🙁

That was funny. I think Elmo might have a future in the adult circuit. You know, if he weren’t 3 and 1/2. 🙂
