Near Celebrity Sighting

I thought Kevin Bacon was ahead of me in line at the Spruce Market. (It could happen. I heard he bought some wine at the Wine and Spirits Shop on Chestnut just a few months ago—the cashier was ecstatic.) He was buying Ocean Spray cranberry juice and a bag of limes. I was buying a 5-pound bag of refined sugar.

Then I returned home. I discovered via various web sites that Kevin Bacon is taller than 5'6", and regularly washes his hair (I hear he uses Phyto).

Bummer. I feel like that greasy guy getting ready to mix a dozen cosmopolitans lied to me.
