(Before I begin, I would like to say that I am aware that it has been like 100 years since I first mentioned this, meaning it has pretty much lost all it's glitz and glamour and mystery and all that, so I have already prepared myself for your disappointment. The end.)
So, last week, I met up with 3 of my cousins for a girls' night of Mexican and Margaritas at my all-time fave Mexican restaurant downtown. For reals, they have the BEST fish tacos you could ever even imagine eating.
Fact: Cousin Val was seriously debating whether to get the Special of the Day - Flautas or go on my recommendation and get the fish tacos. She decided on the flautas because "they're special for a reason." Once the fish tacos showed up, I gave her a bite of them, and her eyes got huge and she said "Don't you hate that moment when you realize you ordered the wrong thing!" Mmm hmm, sure do. Those poor flautas were special no more. Moral: Respect the fish taco.
We're waiting for our table buzzer thing to go off, and all of a sudden, Cousins Chelsea and Austin start whispering frantically and looking towards the door. I tried to turn around to see what was so whisper worthy, and they both shriek/whisper "NO, DON'T LOOK!" You know, because we're in high school and stuff. Then Chelsea says "You know that guy from 500 Days of Summer? He just walked in." Then I said "SHUT UP OMG I LOVE HIM HE IS SO CUTE OMG YOU ARE LYING THAT WAS LIKE THE BEST MOVIE EVER ARE YOU SERIOUS CAN I TURN AROUND NOW OMG."
Do you know who I'm talking about? Joseph Gordon-Levitt! I've seen a bunch of his past stuff and sure, he's cute and all, but man, 500 Days of Summer? He was so stinking cute in that movie that it effectively created a mega crush causing me to regress at least 15 years at the sight of him. And I will tell you this: homeboy is even better looking in person. (Also, how stinking cute was Zooey Deschanel in that movie? Don't you just want to be BFF with her?)
So yeah, I turne around and there he was with two other dudes talking to the hostess. Here, I took the liberty of creating an artistic re-enactment to better help you grasp what was happening. But really, I just wanted to cut and paste some things.
Look how close he was to us! I mean, we're practically holding hands! I guess the table wait was too long for them because they went right back outside. Which coincidentally I had to do also to "take a call" on my cellphone. (What did we do before cellphones really? How did people successfully follow famous people without a cell phone to pretend talk on?)
He and the two dudes with him were standing not far off (discussing topics such as how hot that girl on the cell phone is), and I realized he is kind of standing right in front of my car! Right when I'm working out The Plan in my head about how I have to go get something out of my car or whatever and I will just casually be like "oh hey, I loved your last movie" and then he was going to be like "wow you're hair looks really amazing short like that, can I get your number, and do you have a dress to wear to the Oscars", Aussie came out to tell me our table was ready. Darn it all to heck! So because I am a good friend and didn't want to keep these girls waiting any longer for dinner than they already had plus I have a raging case of Chickenitis, I aborted The Plan and went in for fish tacos.
(Which were WAY better than those flautas.)
