A little Little Richard goes a long way. Like in this case, to Tullahoma and back.
I still can't believe it. I was driving down Church Street in Murfreesboro. A black Cadillac Escalade was trying to pull out of Taco Bell.
Dang it if Little Richard wasn't behind the wheel. I couldn't believe my eyes. I tried to get another look, though the first look had been plenty to know it was him. His hair was in perfect rolls. His mustache was perfectly thin.
I pulled off at Indian Hills, deciding not to go on home but to bust a U-turn and try to follow him. When he got near, I got another good look. And another. And another. I followed/stalked him all the way to Shelbyville. I got several opportunities to take a picture but each time my heart started pounding and I felt like a total moron actually taking it. I just knew that no one would ever believe me.
It was confirmed again that it as in fact him when I saw him eating his Taco Bell food. He had rings on his hand and a fabulous glitzy watch on. He also had on metallic gold, over sized sunglasses.
Once we got to Shelbyville, I saw a man on a bike holler, "Hey! Little Richard!!" He threw his hand out the window and gave a less-than-manly yet enthusiastic wave of of four fingers, holding his thumb still.
I decided that it might not be the best idea to follow him on towards Tullahoma. You think?
I busted another U, this time rolling down my window and asking the man on the bike if it was really him. He said, "Yeah, man! That was Little Richard!!!!!!!!"
I came home totally knowing that people would never believe me. I was in awe.
I got online, and found out pretty quickly that Little Richard moved to Tennessee in January. Hmmmm. Then guess what else? Being the sleuth that I am, I looked up the Moore County property data, since the tags on the Escalade had been from Moore County. Just FYI, Little Richard lives in Lynchburg in a house bought under his real name.
I stalked Little Richard today!!!
