Luckily I am neither 16 or a stalker. Whew!
I however am 25 and a working woman. I do my best to act like the adult I am supposed to be in order to gain respect from my seniors. Nevertheless, you wouldn't know that because when my coworker came running up to my desk saying, "David A is at the Gateway and we are heading over - want to come?" I popped my gum, twirled my hair in my hand and said, "OMG, that sounds so fun!"
In all honesty, I thought we would be able to walk right into the AT&T store where David A apparently was, give him a wave and then go back to work. I certainly underestimated the teenage girls in this state and their ability to skip school - because the Gateway was swarming with pre-adolescent teens.
I of course wore my 3 1/2 inch heels this day and was far behind the rest of my work friends when the screaming started. Before I knew what was happening, I was running like the rest of them. I didn't even know why I was running.
But then I saw it. The limo that our very own David A was in. We waited. And waited a little longer. I turned to see my co-worker climbing the lamp post:
Note: actual shot of my co-worker. I don't make this shiz up.
It was madness.
And then, like the pop star that he is, David A came out of the top of the limo. The girls went WILD! Honestly, I had a minor flashback to my N'SYNC obsession days. Oh, what it was like to be 13 and in love with a pop star. Life was bliss!
My group followed the masses like cattle. I will admit, my camera phone is pretty cool. It took some fun shots.
David drove way, the crowd disbursed and I went back to work. Thanks David A for coming back to Utah. Thank you Agency X for not caring that 6 of your employees disappeared for 30 minutes. And thank you pre-adolescent girls for reminding me how easy it is to ditch school. Life is good.
