    Dude. The only cool celeb moment I have ever had was when I saw Tammy Faye Baker at the Cheesecake Factory in Charlotte, NC. That was like, 5 years ago and I’m still talking about it. You are much, MUCH cooler than me, despite the fact that Frampton shooed you away.

    You know, normally I don’t find enjoyment in other people’s embarrassment. Seriously, I’ve never managed to sit through an entire episode of any reality tv show. But this post, I hate to say, made me laugh to the point of tears. I had to wipe my eyes to go serve a customer before I finished it and it was all I could do not to say to her “God fucks with you through Frampton.” I’m in a tiny town in Australia that’s mostly Catholic, it wouldn’t have gone over well. :)

    Damn you for showing me that I do indeed have a cruel sense of humour, and thank you, thank you, thank you for suffering for my entertainment.

  • Andrea

    I’m crying from laughing so hard. Thanks for making the remaining 56 minutes of my work day more bearable.

  • PhillyChick

    you are SUCH an asshole. and jon, well I think I could kick his ass too. hope to see you on a plane soon.

    No fucking way.

  • NY, NY

    I live in NYC, and see celebrities all the time, I even know a few, and ya know? They are mostly normal people. Most recent siting: Steven Speilberg at the bar I frequent. Such a normal man. Uber-talent, but normal. The one I see the most often is Woody Allen. Not so normal, but oh the talent! Glad you had such a nice encounter with one of your heros.

  • Erika

    That sounds so cool! That is better than the picture to me. Internet proof that you and Jon are the coolest! And that Marlo is beautiful!

  • http://redheadranting.blogspot.com/ Jen

    I almost peed reading that. The tension was so thick, and I drink way too much Diet Crack. Frampton was awesome and still is. No one played the waa-waa like he did.

  • jordan

    fucking BRILLIANT post!!!

  • Lydia

    I can not believe some of these humourless haters making comments. Their words are just dripping with jealousy. What a bunch of LOSERS.

  • wheezer345

    WOW! Whole lota emotion in that post! Glad it turned out alright.

    I too, had a slap-myself-oh-god-what-was-I-thinking moment when I asked Lamar Odom (of the LA Lakers) for a photo at a pool party at the Roosevelt Hotel this past Sunday. I feel like asking for one IMMEDIATELY let everyone in a 100 mile radius know that I was NOT COOL ENOUGH to be there if I did something as obvious and lame as ask a celebrity for a photo. Ughhhhhh, I could have killed myself I was so mortified. Then, of course, his bodyguard thought my friend was hot and stopped to talk to her, so I had to pretend I DIDN’T just look desperate and starstruck and ask for a photo with LO… sigh. And I don’t even have a cute baby to redeem myself with.

    I wanna tell you I w

    So you realize you’re both famous enough that Peter Frampton recognized you. Right?

  • http://www.theohanamama.com Sarah, Ohana Mama

    Awesome. Freaking awesome.

    That’s all I have to say.

  • Liza

    Seriously I have been reading you both for years and have never felt the need to comment but I am sitting here laughing out load from this post. I can picture it exactly as it happened. Brilliant, just brilliant. And he is right – Marlo is gorgeous.

  • Diana

    Fucking hilarious! This is my second favorite post, right after number 26.

  • mar

    That story is just laugh out loud funny. Too bad I’m at work or I would have laughed out loud even louder.

    And it is just so cool that you got to meet Frampton and then he tweets about you.

  • http://www.lifeloveandlevi.blogspot.com KJ

    Only Number 26 could have a story like this.

  • Katie Kat

    OH MY GOD HEATHER! I know I sound like a broken record (hopefully not a Frampton!), but this is one of your best entries! I have done the same thing, but it involved James Brolin of Marcus Welby, M.D. fame at a celeb tennis tournament. I was about 10 years old and SO IN LOVE with TV’s Dr. Steven Kiley – tall, dark, handsome life saver and there he was… right in front of me in white tennis shorts, sporting a perfect tan and that super suave hair… but when I asked for his autograph, he said “Not right now.” I was CRUSHED and never forgot how he shunned me that day. I think it’s why I never dated and didn’t get married until I was 38.

    Anyway… back to the moment. Thank you for giving me the image of Jon dancing at the baggage claim in front of Peter Frampton. I needed a good laugh today!

  • Brianne Smith

    THAT. IS. AWESOME!!!!!!

  • Jenny

    Of course I know who Peter Frampton is, but who is Kourtney Kardashian?

  • Dee

    Heather, I love you and all your medicated craziness, but why would you go on the low-class Bonnie Hunt show? You’re not even a headliner; you’re mentioned as an after-thought, a side show for a few quick laughs. That just seems kind of silly and beneath you.

  • http://lacubrious.blogspot.com LacubriousOne

    Framptom? FRAMPTOM?!?!?! OMG…WTF…BBQ…One time I saw Illinois Representative Paul Simon at the STL airport…yeah…that was my brush with the famous…yep a politician…not even from my own state…argggggggggh!

    You are so brave and funny and neurotic! I just love your writing! FOLLOW!

  • http://uptopdesigns.com Barbara

    What an awesome story! Can’t wait to see you teach Kourtney how to change a diaper!

  • http://marymoores.blogspot.com Mary@Holy Mackerel

    I had such a crush on Frampton. Oh my god.

  • Sam

    Most awesome brush with celebrity story EVER! Congrats.

  • JBird

    Niiiiiiiiiiiiice. Very nice, you lucky devil. My GOD Marlo is beautiful. The cuteness is overwhelming!!! Is this why mothers turn to mush and act irrational? Because those big eyes look at you and you melt into a pool of muck?

  • http://michellekemperbrownlowwrites4kids.blogspot.co,m My Semblance of Sanity

    I would make it a National PETER FRAMPTON TWEETED ABOUT ME Holiday!

    Google it!
    I KNOW you can designate ANY day a holiday, I think you just have to fill out a form or something! Hey, if there is NATIONAL WEAR YOUR UNDERWEAR ON THE OUTSIDE DAY, you can surely have a freaking day dedicated to Good Ole PF tweetin’ ya! THAT IS FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!

    Go! Go! Google it sister!!! Peter F will NEVER forget you if you make HIM a holiday!!!

  • MM3

    Fall-down funny story.
    BUT, more importantly. Marlo looks so much like Leta in that photo it’s nearly redonkulous.

  • Anonymous

    You have elephantitis of the ego. It’s for sure now. Vain, vain, vain. Get a grip.

    The only reason the dude said anything at all about you is that it was probably pretty decent PR… after all, these idiot commenters are now all buying his music. Nice move, Frampton.

  • Jen M

    “Teach Kourtney Kardashian how to change a diaper…”

    Um, was this some kind of high-tech diaper? Cloth? At least something with special, tricky velcro?

    Seriously, I know it’s a problem that many new parents have never held a newborn before going home with their first child these days. But other than the front-to-back / back-to-front thing, how much teaching does this activity require? Changing diapers was about the only thing I felt confident in when we took our daughter home.

  • Tracy

    If you could see me now I bow down to you. You are to funny.I don’t care what you say, just keep blogging. Today at work a co-worker and I were talking about bloggers and blogging, she turned me on to your blog. I am hooked, I hope you are enjoying yourself, becuz you deserve it. You keep blogging I will keep reading.

  • http://www.spriteskeeper.com Sprite’s Keeper

    If Mike doesn’t give you the lifetime supply, he at LEAST owes Marlo!

  • Keri

    Hilarious post, thanks for the good laugh!

  • http://www.thedoggymommy.com/ the doggy mommy

    Ok I was ROFLMAO with chest-bumping Danny DeVito, he would totally do it! But getting Martha Stewart to hold your gum, I double dog dare you!

    As for Peter Frampton, so fucking awesome!!!!!!! What a great story. Thank you!

    P.S. Now you know how it feels to get noticed on Twitter by someone you admire. *wink*

  • Ashee

    What the fucking fuck, that is so cool! K, I know Frampton was big before I was even born but yes, I do know who he is.


  • Sheri

    Great post.

    Frampton story hilarious….

    Marlo ending….PRICELESS. I wasn’t expecting it and laughed out loud…at work.

    Your girls and THOSE EYES. I just can’t get over them.

  • Abby

    “Tito cries tears of milk all day” — definitely my new favorite dooce quote!

    Great story!

  • http://www.anotherkindofdrew.com Andrew Odom

    I have read your blog for what seems like my entire adult life although I am probably only teasing myself with the thoughts of youth. I have been reading for probably right at two years. I don’t think I have ever written a comment until today.

    Thank you for this post. It was funny, poignant, tragic, epic and downright brilliant. I think we have all had some sort of celebrity encounter of some sort – be it large or small – but few of us are able to capture the awkwardness, ridiculousness and even mortification of it the way you did.

    After finishing the last word and laughing outloud several times I have decided that it was Frampton who met the real celebrity. With parents like you two, what child is NOT destined to star status (heck, Kathy Griffin got a show didn’t she?)!

  • Lyla

    Me: *laugh giggle laugh* That’s awesome.

    The Boyfriend: What? Oh. Dooce.

    Me: Yah. You’ll have to read it. It’s a good story. And it involves Peter Frampton.

    The Boyfriend: Well, most good stories do.

  • http://bohemianfrenchcountry.blogspot.com Lindsey

    My coworker just goes “Now I have to Google Peter Frampton because I don’t know who that is.” It made me laugh.

    I LOVE the picture of Marlo, too cute!

  • http://www.youtube.com/Kenmore Kenmore

    Great story! From whipping poopy behinds with Bonnie Hunt and Kim Kardashian to nerding out with Peter Frampton at an airport terminal–all in one post!

    Just goes to show you never know who you’ll meet at the airport ;)

  • http://www.SquareAppleStudio.com Erin Smith

    Great story – but what I really must know is what kind of carseat do you have Marlo in? She totally looks like she doesn’t hate it and my 4 month old haaaaaaates his. Please, do tell.

  • Gwen

    Butter Popcorn.

    I wonder if they’ll catch Kourtney sniffing a poopie diaper to see if it’s true.

  • Anonymous

    OMG that story is the best!!! It made me think back to high school when I first heard Frampton Come’s Alive, I love that album. And the Talk Box?? I can’t believe he is coming out with a new CD.

  • http://www.featheredbythemoonlight.blogspot.com/ Noelle

    Freakin’ awesome story!

    And gorgeous baby, too!

  • Scott M

    Very cool story. Had to go hunt him down on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7rFYbMhcG8

    I, too, am old enough to remember what MONSTER hit that album was. Seriously gigantor.

    Some other thoughts:

    1) Look how skinny he was
    2) Look at how much hair he had
    3) Look how much he resembles Toni Collette!


  • http://gproids.com buy steroids

    And what do you want to bet Peter Frampton gets several thousand new followers out of this encounter? I’m really glad it wasn’t Ted Neugent on your plane….

  • Catherine

    Heather I think you and Jon rock and should I ever run into you at the airport I will totally be the one hiding behind a column with the husband being all like, “don’t bother her, who is she anyway” and I will be forced to slap him.

  • http://www.greeblemonkey.com Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Reading this in the dark, singing along (quietly) to Baby I Love Your Way, thinking about my Shawn Cassidy poster that my guy friends in the neighborhood wanted to cover up with Frampton, and trying not to snortlaugh while Bryan sleeps. I did come perilously close to poking him awake when I got to the part where FRAMPTON (all caps) tweeted you.
