This is the beautiful Patrick Dempsey! :)
You may know him from Sweet Home Alabama:
The HBO movie Iron Jawed Angels:
THE CLASSIC Can't Buy Me Love
& he is also the star of my NEW FAVORITE TV SHOW, Grey's Anatomy:
Where he plays my hearthrob....sigh....Dr. Shepard.
Now, I will tell you a story! :)
I was at work one night and everything was normal. Busy, but normal. I had to-go bags in one hand and checks to drop in the other...I was looking down at what I was doing when I saw a man out of the corner of my eye looking for the restroom. He said:
"Excuse me" to me...and then right as I looked up and guided his arm toward the restroom he said "Oh, there are the restrooms" and walked towards them.
Now, I am a diehard fan of Mr. Dempsey.... I LITERALLY had his face on my computer background at that exact moment in time. It was HIS VOICE...it was HIS 5 O'CLOCK SHADOW...it was HIS FACE!!!! IT WAS HIM!!!!!!!!!!!! I JUST TOUCHED HIM.... I JUST TOUCHED HIM!?!?! WHO THE!!?!?!? AGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGH!!!!
(that was my reaction...followed by a quick turn on my heals back into the kitchen, squealing, shreaking, and hyperventilation.)
Ok, now please remember that I had a number of things in my hand to take care of.....and I had no idea where I was...who I was...or what I was doing. lol! I never imagined I would be starstruck..but I WAS!
I FREAKED OUT. lol..I had no idea how I was going to make it through this shift. On top of that, he was with Jim Caviezel from the Thin Red Line and also played Jesus in the Passion of the Christ:
I grabbed my cell phone and hid out in a bathroom stall and called my sister! hahaha She was the only one that would appreicate this whole situation.
After I calmed myself a LITTLE bit...I got up the courage to run food to his table. (btw...he had a chicken caesar salad..and NO dessert.)
I had tons of food in my hand when the unthinkable happened!! We made eye contact!
I am not making any of this up. I wasn't strong enough to run HIS food, so I decided to run the people's next to him. I was about 5 feet away from him when he looked STRAIGHT into my eyes with a movie star smile! He KNEW i was totally antsy about him! We made eye contact for at LEAST 5 seconds! (If you think that's not long....make eye contact with the something and slowly count to 5! It's A LONG TIME!)
I finally shook my head really quick and had to look away. I looked down at the food and couldn't even remember where it went! The guy who's food I DID have looked up at me and said:
"Is there something we can help you with?" lol...I kid you not! I just started setting stuff down!
Then he goes, "Umm, I don't think we got corn." It was awful... lol
But that is my story. For 5 seconds, Patrick Dempsey was thinking of NOTHING but me. :)
