But I couldn't move. I was just staring. Of course he saw me staring, I mean I was the only young person on the whole bus, I don't think anyone else knew who he was. But he looked right at me and kind of smiled, and he knew, that I knew who he was. At one point it looked like he was waiting for me to say something to him, but I couldn't. I remember thinking, "I don't want to interrupt his time off, touring the city. He wants to enjoy himself and not be interrupted by a silly girl like me." Eventually he stood up to get off the bus, and I just continued to stare as he got up and started to walk off, he smiled at me and left. He got off the bus to get onto another one, that is how the tour buses work, they take you to different parts of town etc. and I saw him get onto the next bus, and sit down. Our bus hadn't moved yet, and apart of me wanted to grab my mom and follow him. He pulled out a banana and started eating it, saw I was still starring at him, and smiled again, with a kind of wave attached to it. Then our bus drove away. I can not believe I didn't just say "Hey, I have been a big fan for a long time, mind taking a picture with me?!" How hard would that have been?! I mean I was right there, no crowd of girls fighting me for his attention, nothing. Oh well... I spent the rest of the day thinking how maybe if I had talked to him he would have been swept off his feet and he would have asked me to be his date for his red carpet appearance for the London premier of Transformers. Darn.
So random long point of this story is.... the other day when Donny Osmond walked into the same ice cream store that my mother and I were at... she wasn't going to go up and say hi to him. Then she remembered how I was when I was sitting next to Shia and how I regret not saying anything... and she went up to Donny cool as a cucumber and had a great conversation with him! Lucky woman. Where was my courage when I needed it?! haha I never would have thought of myself as the "star struck" type haha... Oh well, more power to you mama, you go girl! :)
