How would you react if you met someone you idolized?
Growing up my dad and his friends use to always watch WWE. I would always grab my beanbag and watch it with them haha. When they stopped coming over, because they all got busy I stopped watching. When I was 14 one of my friends was watching it every week, and talked me into watching it again. It was during the time of Legacy (Cody, Ted, and Randy). They where my favorite, plus I had a crush on Cody Rhodes lol . I also became a huge fan of Mickie James at that time.
When I got older, the more I started watching it only for Mickie and one or two other wrestlers. When she left WWE I watched it every now and then, but slowly stopped having interest in watching it. Later on One of my dads friends who knew I was a Mickie fan told me about how she was on TNA. Of course being a huge fan I started watching. I was upset when she left and stopped watching.
Later on I came across a post on facebook that she was going to be at a festival not to far from where I lived. I was determined to go to meet her. My dad being a fan himself decided to go with me so I wouldn’t go alone. The whole time I was excited. We got to her signing booth early. I met her mother, no problem at all. I wasn’t nervous or anything. I remember thinking how pretty and sweet she was. She even made jokes about how Mickie was late. My dad even had a conversation with her sister, and I didn’t think anything of it.
Once Mickie got there I got so nervous. I remember walking up to her and she asked me my name and that was pretty much all I could say. My dad even had to ask for a picture for me haha. When she pulled me closer to her and took the picture I was speechless. I always thought she was pretty, but she was prettier in person.
When we left my dad made fun of me and how I got frozen in front of her. I couldn’t stop smiling the rest of the day. My mom and sister made jokes before saying watch her be a jerk or snob in person. I was so happy she wasn’t, because I had met other celebrities and they where. But she was so sweet and down to earth.
Have your ever met your Idol and became speechless. Couldn’t even think of anything to say? Or did you feel calm?
