I didn’t mention this in my previous posting about celebrities I have met because, strictly speaking, it isn’t my story to tell. But it’s too good to let slide.
I live a short distance from Central High School in Manchester, New Hampshire. Its most famous alumnus is probably Adam Sandler. (It’s also famous as the model for Riverdale High from the Archie comic strip, but that’s another story.) Another CHS Class of 85 alumni happens to be my best friend.
My friend remembers going to school with Sandler. In fact, he claims that Sandler used him as the target for practicing his most biting wit. It took him YEARS to get over his loathing of Sandler, and he still has occasional flashes of bitterness.
I did help, however, the time I e-mailed him a still from “Bulletproof” where he was getting a pistol shoved up his butt…
And to this day I am not, out of loyalty, allowed to like an Adam Sandler movie.
