This morning holds time responsible for the most eventful moment in my so-called love life (or lackness thereof).
So there I was, feasting my eyes on such a wide selection of organic products and exploiting free tastes of gustatory delights. Then, almost immediately, at the sight of a familiar face, my heart sunk, my hands involuntarily started shaking and my stomach dropped: holy crap, it’s Anton Diaz.
I read his blogs all the time. And to say that I love them would be an understatement — it was his blogs that started my whole love affair with gastronomy. And standing there, breathing almost the same air that he breathes, it’s like, eternal fascination with a new set of eyes — it’s the same person you’ve been stalking and admiring from your laptop screen, but then the real life experience hits you in completely different places. OMAYGALIIII.
At first I was content with taking just a paparazzi shot of him, because that is after all who I am: lost when certain key points in life transpire — What to feel? What to do What to say? WHAT?
But then I thought to myself, SRSLY signorina Janelle, this is not the time to chicken out.
This is the moment that I have been waiting for. If my life were a drama show, this scene cues the dramatic situation of epic piano riffs, goosebump-inducing chorus, and melancholic final chords. I SHOULD NOT LET THE SCREEN JUST FADE TO BLACK.
So I mustered the courage to walk up to him:
Janelle: Hi, aren’t you Mr. OurAwesomePlanet? Mr. OurAwesomePlanet: Why yes I am, hello :) Janelle: I am such a big fan, can I have my picture taken with you? I’ll post it in my blog. hehe Mr. OurAwesomePlanet: But of course, what’s your name nga? Janelle: Janelle po hihi *mommy clicks the shutter*
Janelle: Thank you po so much ♥ Mr. OurAwesomePlanet: Anytime :) Nakaikot na ba kayo? You should try the grills, they’re AWSM.
And I just had to blog this because the Media Player cramped up in my neurotic mind keeps on rewinding this morning’s larger-than-life instrumental background-laden, ending montage scenes :P
