Last night, my best friend went to a baseball game near our hometown in California. She got word that my favorite artist was going to be there and went out of her way to meet him for me. She knows that I would be there if I could, but since I live in Texas, I obviously can’t. Knowing how much he means to me as an idol, she got him to text me on her phone. This is what I received: an adorable selfie and a sweet, personalized text from my hero. He knows who I am; I’ve seen him a few dozen times and we always say hi to each other and he recognizes me, but never in my life have I ever been so happy to hear from him. After not seeing him for almost three years, and having him blow up all over the radar, I figured I would have long been forgotten. But, characteristically so, he never ceases to amaze me with his kindness and beautiful personality.
So those of you people out there who have taken the time to read this, learn two things from it:
1. No matter how far apart you are, and no matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen them, a best friend will do anything to make you smile, even if they can’t be there to see it themselves.
2. If you look up to someone, and they’re famous, it doesn’t mean that they forget about the “little people”. There are celebrities out there, big names or not, that genuinely care to make you smile.
This just happened and I laughed real hard xD
