Am I the only one ...?

Name anything(s) you have done that you sense maybe nobody else has ever has.

I'm rather proud. The Sean Connery one is my personal best and I've probably told that one as many times.

Shadders is just jealous because he hasn't got such great anecdotes

I'm probably the only person on here that has given a very drunk Robin Day a lift to the station while he tried to cop off with a woman in the back of the car.

I'm not allowed to tell the greyhound one any more.

'That and him telling her he and Paul Simon still chat regularly on the phone, discussing songs and how to arrange them.'

But they've been slagging each other off for years, so much so that when I typed their names into Google to verify I hadn't imagined it, it suggested 'Simon & Garfunkel feud' to me.

He said that was a load of old cobblers invented by the media.

They just do that for the record sales

Chatted to Delia Derbyshire about all her achievements, while at working at a temp job in a bank

Been in a taxi with Edwina Currie who, without prompting, handed over a signed photo of herself from a bundle she carried with her.

I'm probably the only person on here who doesn't know who Robin Day is.

Travelled on the top of a bus from Jalalabad to Kabul.

And very cold it was.

wickeltisch - 06 Aug 2020 12:43:23 (#50 of 106)

I'm probably the only one on here who was in the DDR the day the Berlin Wall was built.

Unfortunately I was not the only one at all.

Sat 2 rows behind Jimmy Carr at the closing ceremony of London 2012.

I once went to a barbeque where the two people cooking the food were Piers Morgan and Andy Coulson.

Veteran political journalist and interviewer, mainly on the BBC. Wore hornrimmed spectacles and a bow tie. Regarded as abrasive. Died in 2000.

Thanks. Lots of British celebrities are unknown to me (like Delia Derbyshire mentioned above).

FrankieTeardrop - 06 Aug 2020 12:52:00 (#55 of 106)

She's not exactly a celebrity!

I bet Tada was there. In fact it was probably in his garden.

I'm probably the only one here who's taken a photograph of Mikhail Gorbachev talking to a couple of Dublin oul' wans in a shop doorway on Thomas St.* in Dublin.

* down-at-heel shopping area in the middle of 'The Liberties', the heart of working-class Dublin. Stalls on the street, many poundshops, etc etc.

I'm sure I should feel vaguely insulted by this but am not sure why?
