Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Chris Rock is my Fishmonger
I stopped at the Inner Harbor Whole Foods store on the way home this evening to pick up some groceries and wine since I had been out of town for the weekend. This particular store is in the heart of the tourist / Inner Harbour area, and is also on my way home from work (if I drive). Well, I was standing in front of the fish stand, trying to decide between the Mahi-Mahi, or the Tilapia Macadamia Crusted Filet, and I looked up to see none other than - Chris Rock.

Now, this is not just a passing resemblance, this is a "separated at birth, Boys From Brazil, full-on clone" experience. Skin crawling spooky.

So, I said to him, "I'll bet no one ever EVER tells you that you look like Chris Rock, right?"

With that, he dissolved into laughs, giggles, and THE scariest impersonation I have ever seen. Big teeth, big smile, perfect dimples, and a "DAMN, Y'ALL!!", to wake the dead. It was eery. I seriously had to stop and make sure I wasn't being 'Punk'd" or something.

I never did get his real name, but he said he's been posing for photos and signing autographs ever since he started there.

So...if you're in the Inner Harbor and need some fresh fish - head over to Chris. He'll hook you up.
