I see this particular actor on, what I consider, a fairly regular basis. I never talk with him or outwardly acknowledge him because I'd like to be one of those people that lets celebrities live their lives as normally as possible-- especially since I typically see him at the kids' school.
Side note: if I had a top ten list for celebrities, this guy would probably be in my top 3 so, needless to say, I enjoyed the exchange.
It was nothing out of the ordinary, just a typical trip to pick up the kids from school. I had curled my hair and was feeling and looking good. On the way to the school I thought to myself how it was time for another encounter with this actor. Always wishful thinking over here! :) As I drove passed the gate where all the parents and nannies wait to get the kids, I saw him. "Yessssss!" I thought.
I parked and walked toward the gate only to have this guy turn to see who was walking his way. He turned back to face toward the gate as I stopped to wait a little behind him and to his right by myself.
Here's when he made my day even better:
He turned back around, looked directly at me (believe me, there was no one else standing near me) and gave me his little side smile. I smiled back and that was that! The bell rang, the principal opened the gate and we all walked in to get our kids.
I could hardly wait until I got home to text my friend who also loves him: "I made P****** freakin' D****** do a double take!"
I'd like to think it was my beauty (and not the fact that he and I were matching in our black v-necks and dark fitted jeans) that made him turn back around and smile. A girl can dream, right? :)
