Basil gets celebrity-spotted at BWI

At the Southwest Airlines ticket counter at BWI, en route to see my son graduate from Marion Military Institute.

Lady taps me on the shoulder.

"Excuse me, would you happen to be Basil White?"

"I would happen to be Basil White."

"I just wanted to say thank you."

"You're welcome."

"I used to weigh 500 pounds."


I looked at the ticket counter lady. "I shouldn't be famous and poor. It's not fair."
