Tom on the Tarmac

He stopped, smiled, and politely asked my mother, "How are you tonight?"

A few years back, my husband, my mother, and I had just ended a vacation in Hawaii.

There was some delay at the airport, and we waited on the tarmac for at least 20 minutes before the plane moved from the gate. All of a sudden, we heard silly giggles that we assumed came from the stewardesses. We looked up and, to our pleasure, saw Tom Selleck.

He stopped, smiled, and politely asked my mother, "How are you tonight?" She looked up, blushed, and responded, "I'm just fine now!"

The whole plane burst into laughter.

Years ago when I was a kid, I flew to Chicago and sat next to someone who I swear was Tom Selleck but before he was famous.
