It was a mad house today. People everywhere. They estimated 30,000 people would have visited the museum before 7:30 tonight.
Well my Sean experience was very unigue. I came around the corner and saw a bunch of state troopers. He was sitting in the volunteer office chatting with Astrid and Mike. Astrid says "oh there she is." Apparently they were talking about me. (Astrid said it was because I am one of only three volunteers that hasn't missed a shift yet and she was very proud of me =). )
Sean promptly stands and shakes my hand and says it's his honor to meet me. An honor to meet me? Huh. I stammered out some sort of reply. He asked my favorite part of the exhibit is and I told him that I love what I do. I love talking about metals. We spoke very briefly on the subject. He seemed generally interested in me babbling about making iron ore into steel.
He is a beautiful man. And very very short. His eyes were entrancing. He smelled of coffee and musk.
It was over pretty quick. They wanted to bring him upstairs for some sort of vip thing. He asked if I would be by to later to get a book signed. I explained that one I had no money, two, by the time my shift ended, they wouldn't be allowing anyone else in line. He seemed disappointed.
He was then quickly whisked away and then when my senses came back I realised I didn't take a picture. D'uh. I'm such an idiot.
I never got that close again the entire day.
The line was out the door and down the sidewalk in two directions.
Also I got hit on today by this kinda weird guy in the exhibit. He was friendly, but if he stared any harder at me, he would have burned a whole in me. Kept asking me what I was doing after the exhibit. I kept ducking the question.
Anyway, I'm home and still kinda getting over the shock. I had stuff that I had wanted to write about Jimmy Kimmel show last night, but I'm so tired.
