Brush with fame

Whenever I travel with my mum we run into someone famous. And usually my mother has no clue who they are. We were in a music shop in London and I looked over and my mum was talking about jazz albums with Elvis Costello. She didn’t know who he was. After he left she said, “What a nice man, we talked about Ella Fitzgerald.”
