bad timing

I was in the City today with a couple of friends. Walking down Burke St, just down the hill from Parliament, I saw someone who resembled federal opposition leader Kevin Rudd. Jokingly, I turned to my friends and said "Hey look! Isn't that John Howard?"

It turns out it really was Kevin Rudd. If only I'd held my joke in a few seconds longer, he might have heard me. Damn!

Sorry, but the Librarian (or Technician) in me is screaming to point out you spelt Bourke Street wrong.
That aside, I have enjoyed telling many people this story.

A thousand pardons; my only excuse is that I poured half a beer over my keyboard the other week and some of the keys are still a little sticky ("so why didn't you proofread, genius?")
