Today's post is dedicated to Dorie. Just because. So there.
If I believed in signs and shit, I would totally believe that the following story was exponentially even more awesome than it is.
So, a couple of weeks ago me and some of my cast-mates went out to eat after a rehearsal for [NEW PLAY!] (which opens tonight FYI). And our waiter is this TERRIBLY adorable and TERRIBLY sweet young man. So, naturally my friends begin to tease me saying that he can be my new HSBestie since Lurrrver17 will soon be off to college.
Anyway, turns out this adorable bit of a boy is in fact IN HIGH SCHOOL (irony) and is an actor, loves Shakespeare and is also hilarious. I begin to agree that I might in fact replace Lurrrver17 with him.
Anyhow, AlyJack surreptitiously takes a picture of him and PHOTOSHOPS him into a picture with me....yes. She actually took a picture of me and Lurrrver17, cut Lurrrver17 out and replaced him with NewHSBestie.
Lurrrver17 is out of the picture both figuratively and literally.
Somewhere, a unicorn dies.
It was pretty much amazing, so I posted it to Facebook. Natch.
ZOOOOOM forward to last night, when PowerPunch (a delightful young gal who's in [New Play!] with me) is all:
PowerPunch: :::sigh:::: Love is in the air!
Me: Oh yeah? Spill it sister!
PowerPunch: Well, my friend is setting me up with this guy, and he is just SO great.
Me: Awesome! Does he go to your school?
PowerPunch: No he goes to [OTHER HIGH SCHOOL!], but he's a senior too.
Me: Really. What's his name?
Me: Does he work at the [Place we Ate At] up the street?
PowerPunch: YES. WHY?
Me: OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!
I mean, turns out? IT'S THE SAME TERRIBLY ADORABLE KID.
Small.Frackin' WORLD right?? I mean how incredible is that??!?! It's kind of my favorite.
Lurrrver17 says "See what happens when you try to replace me? NOT POSSIBLE."
FYI? I deleted that scary ass shit off my Facebook so don't go looking for it.
