Remember 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon? Well if you’re a Montrealer, chances are you probably wouldn’t be able to reach him in only 6 degrees maybe 666. But I know of a new version, MTL style: 6 degrees of David Usher!
How did this get started, you ask? I was at a family dinner party recently and happened to mention this David Usher blog of mine to a family friend. Imagine my surprise when she related that she knew David Usher’s wife, as their children go to school together and have become friends.
Me –> My aunt –> Her friend–> her kids –>David Usher’s kids–>David Usher’s wife –> David Usher
It’s official: I have 6 degrees of David Usher! I’m no longer only a slightly stir crazy blogger staring down from her balcony and scanning the streets for the former Moist front man. Dare I hope that this connection, albeit tenuous, will one day enable me to meet the man in the flesh? A girl can dream… In the meantime just think: if I can reach DU, most of you can too!
