Last night, I was at a graduation where I knew a few people, but not many. At the reception, I, as usual, found a comfortable area to stand. I was out of the way, could be close to the few people I knew, but not up in their conversation with the other parents of the graduates, and I could observe the behaviors of all in the room (a creepy yet fascinating hobby of mine).
As I was talking to a good friend, a lady pops up and is visibly excited, as if she had seen someone famous. My brain and ears caught up with my eyes and I heard her saying. "Oh my gosh! It's you! I read your stuff on Facebook. You are ClassicMAZ!"
I was the celebrity sighting.
I felt my face redden but I was amused and flattered. I enjoyed meeting her and then I turned away as some of the kids had gathered at the front of the room to sing to the graduates. I heard the lady I just met talking to my friend, behind me.
"oh. I want a picture! I am going to try to sneak a selfie." I thought she was talking about trying to sneak a pic of her graduate daughter. I turned to see what she was talking about and her back was turned to me as she fumbled with her phone. I heard her excitedly say, "I'm going to sneak a selfie." My friend grinned at me. I realized She was trying to sneak a selfie with ME!
This was all very amusing to me. I snuck my head very close behind her.....and 'photo bombed' her secret selfie.
It was a pleasure to meet you, Terri White! You made my night. You are no longer a secret follower, we are friends.
but my friends will tell you, I am not as fun, happy and outgoing in real life, as I seem to be on social media.
