We flew home last weekend. We had to check out of our condo at noon and had a few hours to kill before the plane ride home.
We spent some time in the condo area and then went across to the ski lounge where we knew we could find some snacks before we left for the airport. I grabbed the most delicious cookies in the world for the boys and sat them down in a nearby couch. Blog-Stedman grabbed a bite and sat down beside me. I looked up and saw someone who looked familiar.
Hey, that guy looks like a cross-between Fred Thompson and Fraiser.
Blog-Stedman looked across the room and nodded.
The familiar guy was with his family. They were taking a break from skiing and making plans for later in the week.
The boys continued to eat and I got up and down getting more cookies and crackers and drinks in the hopes that this would keep them satisfied until we arrived at home in the evening.
Rhett(3) then demanded a drink other than I had provided. He said he would show me what he wanted. He darted across the room with me following close behind.
He ran underneath familiar guy who was standing at the cappuccino machine and grabbed a Sprite.
Familiar guy said, “Hey there little guy!” about the same time I firmly said…
Rhett started into a faux-tantrum.
Definition: a faux-tantrum is one that even the child knows is not a tantrum. The hallmark of a faux-tantrum is lackluster flailing, quieted screaming and overall tantrum malaise.
I was able to wave off the underwhelming performance with another…
About that time, the cappuccino machine sprung into action startling familiar guy who was standing over me. I said…
Those machines always frighten me too.
And then he laughed.
And then I nearly suffered heart failure.
It was Kelsey Grammer.
I fall asleep watching Fraiser every night. That laugh is unmistakable.
I managed to hold myself together. You all would be so proud of me. I was able to continue as normally as is possible when Kelsey Grammer is in the room when everyone is trying to continue as normally as possible.
Those of you on facebook know I couldn’t act normally AFTER I left with my star studded status update. I fully expect that Kelsey Grammer’s facebook update reflected our meeting as well…
If only he would accept my friendship so I could find out.
