The Conversation

You’re never prepared to have a conversation with a celebrity especially when you know you have limited time. Your thoughts are all over the place ~You’re absorbing your surroundings without staring.  You want to get as much into the conversation as you possibly can, (for you know this is your lottery win) without sounding pompous…. or for that matter a weirdo. You’re nervous, you want to make conversation with everyone, you want to be polite at all times, you want to throw in a joke here and there, you want them to be comfortable with you and not have them think you’re a crazed fan, you want to make an impression, you want to be yourself even though you’re dressed in Jack attire….. “Man alive, did I cram all that in, in 10 minutes?”

The Impromptu Hug

Half way into the conversation, and if only my head wasn’t in such a whirlwind, I might have remembered why I received this impromptu hug from Johnny Depp. Maybe it was to calm me down, (for I do become a rather over the top type personality when excited), or something I said that sparked a hug, what ever the reason, it was such a sincere gesture coming from a very sincere man.  I can’t explain it but this hug was not from an actor, a celebrity, from someone famous, or a face who graces the screens of computers and/or cell phones of all his fans ~ it was a hug from a genuine person. It was more a hug from an old friend I had not seen in years and we just happened to bump into each other.

“Johnny Says Goodbye”

Of course all good things always do come to an end, but it will always be an incredible memory of a journey that went far beyond my wildest expectations, (I would like to kiss the person who invented the camera). I guess patience truly is a virtue, but even if this meet had not come to pass, I am ecstatic with the fact I have come to meet so many wonderful and incredibly talented people through this journey, whether in person or on social media, during my years of emulating JD and many of his characters. I feel blessed. I learned how to sew, (now that has to account for something aye) and it brought our family and friends together attending events we would otherwise never have heard about, enjoying the spirit of dressing up hanging out with my favourite people “KIDS” and becoming fascinated with ‘film’. After our last hug goodbye, I came back to planet Earth.
