scooty and I went out to Wilsonville to hit up Costco to get some tennis balls. As we were pulling into the parking lot my cell phone rings. It's angz telling me she's back in town. She asks what our plans are for tonight and as I'm telling her the car stops to let some people cross the parking lot. As we're stopped I see this guy walking out of Costco and I look at Scotty and say jokingly, "Hey man is that Linus?" and chuckle to myself. The guy gets about 15 feet closer and I realize it's really him!
I screech into my cell phone to my now confused wife, "I gotta call you back," and hang up. I roll down my window and look at the guy and ask, "Are you Linus?" He looks a little bewildered but confirms that yes he is Linus Torvalds, father of Linux, and my personal hero. In shock at this point I say, "Man you're my hero, I just have to shake your hand." He shakes my hand, laughs a little at my fanboyism and walks away. Scotty and I freak out in the car a little bit, and then I pick up my cell phone to call my wife back to explain why I hung up on her :)
