As I’ve mentioned before, I looooove Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
So, when he’s on Broadway, basically down the freaking street, I had to go.
I happened to get out of work with just enough time to walk to Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s theater, so off I went!
Obviously he’s super talented. Blah blah blah. We can all skip over that park. We know.
At the end of the show, I got to meet him at the stage door.
When he was in Spelling Bee, I met him 40 million times. (I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but he once recorded my outgoing voicemail!)
In fact, I met him so many times, and saw so much of his stuff (as much as I could) when he was not famous that he totally knew who I was. I think there may have been a point where he thought, “Who the heck is this girl?! Stop liking me so much!”
(It’s weirdly weird that it’s weird to be a superfan of someone who’s performing a lot but not famous, but it’s more normal once they are.)
So, when I met him this time, for some reason, I thought he *might* – just might – still remember me and be like, “You again?!” But no. He didn’t seem to remember me or be annoyed. I said that I’d seen basically all of his stuff all of the time and he said he thought that was so sweet.
So, here were are, being best friends almost a decade later. 😉 Yay, Jesse Tyler Ferguson!
