Last Saturday we went to the Macaroni Grill in Lynnwood with Heather and Christian. Christian commented that the busboy looked really familiar and we all agreed but couldn't place where we recognized him from. On Tuesday I went to my chiro appointment and was talking to the receptionist who I had seen at the restaurant. She asked if I had seen the American Idol guy there. I asked her what she was talking about and she said that the busboy had auditioned for American Idol but didn't make it onto the show. Immediately I realized who she was talking about. I called Heather as soon as I got out to my car and let her know that Christian was right, he did recognize the busboy but it wasn't from the movie theater or another restaurant it was from watching American Idol! We were very relieved to finally figure out why we recognized him. For all of you American Idol fans if you want to meet the "bush monkey" from the show head over the Macaroni Grill in Lynnwood. I hear he even will sing for you if you ask.
