Celebrity Disguises

May 12, 2008 at 3:38 pm 9 comments

After spending a lovely Saturday up in Sausalito, my friends and I walked past a Lappert’s ice cream shop and were wondering if we NEEDED an ice cream, when out walked a double decker tin roof sundae in a waffle cone.  My friend, J, and I looked at each other and said, “Um, yes, we need some.”  So we walk in, and promptly press our noses to the glass, deciding which flavor we needed, when my other friend, S, engaged me in dialogue:

S: That was Jamie Foxx!

LeMare:  The man holding the cone?

S:  The big black man that looked like Jamie Foxx.

LeMare:  I didn’t notice size, skin color, or face, but I did notice the double decker waffle cone with Tin Roof Sundae.

S:  He had a couple carats in each ear.

J:  How were we supposed to look at his face when he was holding that cone?

LeMare:  This is like when women complain about men looking at their chests and remind them that their eyes are up here.  Was he wearing sunglasses?

S:  On top of his head.

LeMare:  He didn’t need them covering his eyes, not with such a clever decoy as a delicious cone on a beautiful day!


So, celebrities who are hounded by the paparazzi, let this be a lesson to you.  If you don’t want to be recognized, hats and dark glasses are not the way to do it.  For heaven sakes, all it takes is something decadent in your hands and NO one will be looking at your face!

    A. Betty White, Stephen Colbert, Gary Coleman, Ben Vereen, Placido Domingo, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    Q. What ice-creamless* celebrities has Massimo randomly encountered?

    *Justice Ginsburg was sampling an hors d’oeuvre tray.

    I had an epic encounter with one Alan Thicke. My adoration knew no bounds.

    It was 1989.

    I have not had much luck in this department. But there is a game, I can’t recall the name of it, where a question is posed to the group. Answers from each person are written down on a piece of paper and passed to the reader. The reader reads aloud each response and the group votes on who they think said what.

    One question was posed. “What famous person in history would you most like to have lunch with and why?” That one took me about 4 seconds to write down:

    “Karl Marx, so I could punch him in the nose.”

    I can’t get over the Rose Nylund sighting. Amazing.

    LeMare – I totally agree with the ice cream decoy. Never would I notice a celebrity if they carried a large ice cream sundae in their hands.

    The all-time celebrity sighting high for me was Keri Russell and Scott Speedman at The Gap in Santa Monica. This is when they were dating in real life and on Felicity. My heart stopped when I saw them.

    Celebrity sighting for Mr. & Mrs. Sportsattitude (of course it would be sports-related) was a “double-header”…Richie Ashburn and Mike Schmidt, Philadelphia Phillies’ legends from different eras…paying for their breakfast directly behind us…in Pittsburgh. We’ve lived in Philly region 99% of our lives and we wound up seeing them in the Marriott paying for food just like we were as we were in town to see the Phils play the Pirates.
