Days of the Dead Chicago starts today and runs through Sunday. I'll be there all weekend enjoying the fun. Today, I present some of the fun from last year.
I have met actress Traci Lords many times over the years. Through the years, we have developed a bit of a familiarity. Last year at DotD, Traci had a little fun with me.
In the past, I had gotten a fun picture where Traci covered my face with her hand. I said I never looked better and Traci got a laugh out of it.
When I saw Traci last year, she recalled the photo and asked what we were going to do this year. I laughed and said I didn't want to keep bothering her. She directed me to stand in front of her and we got our picture taken that way. Who am I to refuse Traci? We actually did a few silly pics, before taking one "normal" pic.
A lot of celebrities wouldn't go that far. A lot of celebrities wouldn't be up for such silliness. That is just one reason why Traci is truly the best. It is also one reason why I will always see Traci any time I can.
Traci has had a great career. She's had regular roles on tv's Melrose Place, Profiler and First Wave, as well as many other one-time roles. She has also had major success on the big screen with such hits as Cry-Baby. Not of This Earth is one of her earliest movies and one I really loved. I think it has become a cult classic!
As I wrote, I have met Traci many times and I hope to see her again in 2020. It's always a pleasure seeing her.
