Was this just a random meeting, not on a show day? How funny indeed!
Yeah, just a random meeting. So crazy. The guys live a few minutes away from me and I happened to be walking out of one store while Matt was walking out of another. I had zero composure- which NEVER happens but I approached him anyway. Ha. After we chatted for a few, I asked for a picture and Matt insisted on a photo shoot. He’s the one that actually took the pictures. Then we talked for a bit longer. It was amazing. He’s an absolute sweetheart. So down to earth. Haven’t had the pleasure of running into him or any of the guys since but that one experience will last me a lifetime. I’m such a sap. 🙂
Yeah, I get paranoid also but at the same time I’d like to make up for my lack of composure with another chance meeting. Ha. It’s strange because I’ve met a bunch of different famous people over the years and NEVER had that reaction. I think it’s because it was so unexpected, ya know? Usually if I meet someone, it’s because I’m waiting after a show so I have time to prep myself. Not so much with Matt. There was no time for thinking. Just walked right up to the man. 🙂
You’re quite welcome! It’s my pleasure to share. Hopefully I’ll have another (not so embarrassing) story to tell one of these days. 🙂
Yea, I mean it probably hasn’t surfaced, because it’s just sat on my computer for years, it’s not on my website or anything. I have more National photos I could post, but they aren’t of ‘me and the band’. Post them here?
