My not so secret crush on Steve Carrel

If you refer back to one of my old posts I admitted to a not so secret crush on Steve Carrel. I think he is so funny and charming and I always joke to Curtis that if I ever met him I would ask him to father my next child. Well today I met him at my neighborhood Sugarhouse Smiths! I was just standing chit chatting with some friends from our ward the Lockes, when Tyson Locke said "That guy looks a lot like Steve Carrel." I looked up and sure enough Steve Carrel and his wife came walking towards us and I said "What are you doing in my grocery store?!" (I know clever right) he just laughed and I said I am a big fan and that I always tease my husband that I want him to father my next child and then he laughed and said "Meet my wife Carol" (remember his real estate agent on the Office Carol? That is his real life wife) Then he told us he was here to ski and we said welcome to Salt Lake. Can you believe what a dork I am? What is it about meeting celebrities? Lets hope I never randomly run into Jude Law I might propose on the spot! Hope you all enjoy how crazy I am!

I am so excited for you! I love this story, it is classic Sophia, I would have smiled politely from behind a cereal box...

That is great you said something to him. But Josh told me I can't believe you until I see a picture. Cause he said you would have taken a picture with your phone or something. But I believe you. That is fun.

I love this story, too--reminds me of the day I saw David Strathairn at the farmer's market and I pointed and said to the people I was with, loud enough for DS to hear, I might add, "That's a movie star!" And then? Then, I repeated it. Dork.com.

shut up! i am so jealous! i love steve! but i would have been to nervous to say something clever like you. i probably would have just stalked him through out the store, attempting to get a pic with my phone. i want to meet a celeb!

That was your chance and you blew it! So much for a little Steve running around here :)

I think Steve is such a great comedic actor...your crush is a bit weird but it works. I just finished Kite Runner it has a few disturbing incidents but it is a fantastic story of friendship and redemption. I loved it and couldn't put it down!

P.S. Did you ask Steve when OFFICE Shooting resumes? My life is so uneventful without that show....Thursdays are meaningless without it!

Amelia is right, classic Sophia! I can't tell you how many laughs WE have gotten from telling your story, I am sure you've gotten more. Also, come over any time for a game of Catan (I totally suck at it, but love it still).

ABick said...

i hope that me and you never meet jude law together cuz a double proposal from two pretty Utah girls might be a little overwhelming for him...or just embarrassing for us...
