- The Night We Almost Ran Over James Taylor
One warm summer night, my friend and I were driving through downtown Portland and my friend, who was driving, started to roll through a stop sign, looking only to the left to see if she was clear to go. I looked to my right and saw a man about to walk in front of her car, so I start to say, Pedestrian, and instead screamed at the top my lungs "IT'S JAMES TAYLOR!" and she started screaming too, and of course all the windows were rolled down, so he heard us loud and clear. As James walked in front of her car, he did this funny little "oh no, don't run me over" kind of of pantomime that was so cute! So yeah, I basically saved James Taylor's life.
