"I was attending a work conference in Austin, Texas staying at the Renaissance Hotel the same week that Dennis Quaid was hosting his celebrity golf tournament. Turns out, all the celebrities were staying at my hotel; it was actually pretty cool. I saw lots of celebrities, none were really A listers, but people you could recognize.
Well, Dennis Quaid has always been one of my big celebrity crushes. I just love him and his movies. So, one evening a bunch of us were waiting for a bus to take us to a party in downtown Austin. As we were waiting, we see a yellow Hummer drive up and park just to the left of the hotel entrance.
And, oh my god, Dennis Quaid was driving it! There he was in all his glory! I just stood there in their weird limbo where I wanted to run up and hug him but I was just too embarrassed.
I finally convinced myself I would never ever again have this opportunity. So, I walked up to the driver side door of the hummer, and the window was down. I am not really sure what I said, but I do remember what has become one of my most embarrassing moments.
I reached up and shook his hand and all I could think to say was....'Bless You.'
Really, that is what came out of my mouth! He kinda smirked and said thanks. I was mortified but really excited!"
