I always thought of myself as someone who is quite composed in almost everything. I rarely jumped up and down screaming and stuff. Not really easily panicking over something (except firecrackers. I hate firecrackers!). Okay, I know some of you would say, “Yeah right, Astrid, we don’t believe it.” Ehm… yeah perhaps it’s true, sometimes I think too much of myself…
Anyways, at least I *used* to believe I won’t ever going to get starstruck, that I would remain poised whenever I get to meet a star. After all, being in Berlin with its film festival events get me some chances to see some movie stars up close. So far so good, I guess. At least there’s no proof saying otherwise.
Until the night we went to the concert in Lajatico on Sunday July 25th, 2010. We had this one amazing moment when Andrea Bocelli happens to walk within my arm reach. OMG!!!
I’m going to show you screenshots since the whole moment is captured on video. Darling hubs happened to be blocking Andrea’s way (lucky hubs!!!). Technically hubs was actually even closer to Andrea than me, just too bad we didn’t have hubs’ face on camera .
Here’s the first picture, the maestro was just finished with his interviews and photo session. He was walking back to the backstage. Hubs was right on his path. I was on the opposite side of hubs, so in a way we could say Andrea Bocelli made his path between us .
That would’ve been pretty close. But wait…
Aaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! And he kept on walking to the direction of hubs. His bodyguards told him to make way.
Now, where was I? Oh yes, from that angle I was on his right side, on the opposite side of hubs. You could see me on the next frame, right after Andrea Bocelli walked past us.
Completely mesmerized. Frozen. Starstruck. Bonkers.
PS: Please forgive my blogging hiatus, I was on vacation, had some friends visiting, and I’m trying to get to the submitting deadline of my work. Still working hard at the moment! *fingers crossed*.
