Ever have a conversation with a "celebrity"...

| 4 Comments
...and not realize it till after?
SCENE: BUILDING ON UPPER WEST SIDE.

Girlfriend and I step into the elevator
with friend's puppy. We're joined by a
young couple and their child.

SMALL CHILD
(recognizes friend's dog,
correctly says the dog's name)

FEMALE
Yes, it's a puppy.

MALE
(to me)
How old is it?

ME
She's about a year old... not sure exactly. It doesn't
belong to me, it belongs to _______.

FEMALE
Oh, it's _____ and _____'s dog.
(to daughter)
You were right! It's _______!

ME
(continues in conversation,
entirely focused on not
letting the very large black
lab get too close to the small
child who both wants to pet it
but is a bit afraid of it)
My floor.

FEMALE AND MALE
Have a nice day!

ME
(looking at them briefly, walking
out)
You too!

Took three seconds after the elevator closed till I had the thought, "wait, wasn't that Kerry Butler?"
Took two more days to find out she actually lives in the building.

Kerry Butler, if you are reading this, I'm sorry I didn't get to tell you that you were awesome in Batboy. Other stuff too, but particularly Batboy.

I've never met Kerry Butler, but I'm almost sure I saw Bebe Neuwirth at Grand Central once.
Bebe seems like the type who would go to Grand Central. Too good for the likes of us that have to settle for Penn Station.
Some people have all the luck!
Oh, Jake will be so jealous. Her husband is/was a Muppeteer! Though how could you not recognize her right away, her digitalized-face-beyond-the-point-of-recognition poster for Xanadu is EVERYWHERE!~ Megan
