Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
I have rubbed shoulders with the rich and the very poor and those in between.
rub shoulders = keep company

For example, if someone who lives in London regularly attends the same nightclubs that celebrities go to, they might say "Oh yes, I regularly rub shoulders with celebs". They've simply been in the same club, same room etc - the celebs probably don't know they exist!
