There was this guy named Joe who was running with his family! He's from Peoria!
Anyway, Joe from Peoria must have felt real welcome-like, because people went waaay out of their way to say hi and stuff! Just a middle-aged Joe, super-nice guy from Peoria! People really, really, loved on him! It was neat! I liked Joe, too! Great guy!
You know how some things you go to, and there's the "important people", and then the others? It was cool that at this Christian event, because some Joe from Peoria could be treated like he was important, too! He must've felt like a real star, too!
In a celebrity culture, it was a reminder to me to celebrate everybody! I thought that was neat! We're different!*
* -- Incidentally, Joe from Peoria has a new job!
** -- Joe told me his favorite artist on my radio station is Casting Crowns!
