The small personage I saw in the lobby was indeed Dr. Ruth.
Dressed casually, she came breezing into the lobby, plopped herself down on a chair to wait for the person she was going to meet.
She sat on the edge of her chair and watched everything and everyone with great interest, like a little bird. We made eye contact and smiled briefly and continued with our individual perusings of the room.
When the gentleman for whom she was waiting finally arrived, she rose and greeted him with a hug and a kiss and exchanged a few words in German. Then she gathered up her things and they were off.
This was just as satisfying as the time I saw The Fonz on the street and leaned out of the car window to holler "I love you". He graciously blew a kiss. I remember wondering at the time what it must be like to be a star and be walking down the street deep in your own thoughts and have a fan scream undying love from a passing car.
What famous person(s) have you seen?
