My Brush with Greatness

I'm a child of the 80's and if you are too then you probably remember this awesomeness:

And then of course there was this masterpiece:

Ahhhh, the great works of Matthew Broderick. Who is Ferris married to? Carrie:

The Pilot and I were in the DCA airport on Sunday waiting for our flight home. While we were talking about getting our boarding passes (we were non-reving), the Pilot had his back to the walkway in the center of the airport. I noticed a woman behind him with giant sunglasses. I thought to myself that it kind of looked like Sarah Jessica Parker but didn't say anything, assuming I was mistaken. But the RIGHT behind The Pilot was Matthew Broderick. I lost my ability to speak for a moment and started hitting The Pilot's arm. SJP and Ferris walked on by while I was still trying to spit out their names as The Pilot probably wondered what the h was wrong with me.

I never see anyone famous...or if I do, I don't know that I do. I saw Seal in an airport once but that's about it. So that was my brush with greatness. I live an exciting life.


  1. How cool! Those are true A-listers. I would have been speechless too.

    I know you're right, we probably cross paths with celebrities more than we realize. Without the make-up that are rather ordinary.

    DH says he rarely recognizes "famous" people on his flights until he sees their names on the manifest. And by famous I mean he's had people like Kirk Cameron, Lil John, and Alexis Bledel on flights before, lol. Ok, maybe Lil John stood out a bit :)

  2. I would have lost the ability to speak too!
