Yes, this happened...

Kristin Chenoweth, left...
(Robert Deutsch/USA TODAY)
(and yes, that's the original cutline USAT photo editor Jym Wilson wanted to put on the photo...)

I hope the lovely-and-talented Ms. Chenoweth realizes the magnitude of me being photographed, in shorts, after a day of wandering among the masses at CMA Music Festival, and then having it posted on the website of the nation's largest newspaper (depending on the day). She looks fantastic...I look like a schmuck.

Seriously, she was a tremendous sport about it all. Jym and Bob had her run through the traditional gamut of things they do in the USAT portrait room, when Jym said, "OK, we have got to get a shot of the two of you together." He hadn't even finished the sentence when Kristin kicked off her heels and was all about it.

And as I was doing my normal "lean in so there's some semblance of being in the same shot" that I do when taking photos with other people, she bellows "Don't you DARE lean over!"

Yes, dear reader, a 4'11 blonde Broadway star yelled at me, albeit in fun. The things I do for a national byline...

Love it! So jealous. And you do not look like a schmuck; you look fantastic.
