If you missed Dave Chappelle, Part I, here it is.
Well, I've seen Dave Chappelle a few more times since I last wrote about seeing him. He's always hanging out...and especially that the weather's been so nice lately, it seems like he's out everytime I go into town. But I've just seen him...no real chance for a photo-op.
Yesterday I needed to go to the little grocery store in Yellow Springs to pick up a few items during my lunch break. After I parked, I was walking up to the store, and there he was, sitting by himself on a bench outside of it. I had to take this opportunity, since I had my camera with me this time, and since he was by himself. So I asked him how he was doing, and then I just put it out there - "Can I get my picture with you?" - as dumb as that sounds. He then said he doesn't take pictures in Yellow Springs, which I can understand. I started walking away, a little disappointed, then he redeemed himself again, by apologizing and offering a handshake. So I talked to him for a little bit longer.
He really does seem like a nice guy. I don't know that he's really comfortable with the fame that he's recently gotten, because he seems to want to keep a low-profile, and live a normal life. I mean, there's a reason he's choosing to live in tiny little Yellow Springs, as opposed to LA or New York.
That's all I've got for now. Pretty sad, huh? :)
