When You Meet A Werewolf Be Sure To Stop And Get A Picture

Yesterday's post may have seemed kind of random, but the truth is we had a little experience at Disneyland last week that exorcised that particular memory from my brain.  Samantha doesn't have a celebrity crush like her under-the-influence-of-Tiger Beat-mom did, but she does watch a lot of Disney channel with her younger brother. 

At first we didn't notice the small group of teens walking ahead of us along the waterfront of California Adventure, but eventually we observed that every time this young crowd passed by a set of girls, their eyes got big and the girls turned and excitedly whispered to each other.  I can't remember who in our group figured it out first, but we soon realized that one of the kids ahead of us was Gregg Sulkin who plays a werewolf and Selena Gomez's boyfriend on Wizards of Waverly Place.  

I turned to Samantha and begged her to go ask him for a picture - I could tell she wanted to, but she hesitated.  "Don't do what I did Samantha!" I told her, the Pierce Brosnan regrets now fully engaging my frontal lobe.  She didn't want to go alone but when she tried to rally Drew for company he vehemently shook his head and retreated further behind.  Finally, she approached my friend Jill and asked her, "Jill!  Will you go with me?"  Being the good sport that she is and someone for whom the word "shy" never applies, Jill was game and saved the day.  She ran up to him, tapped his shoulder and politely asked him for a picture.  And now I know that if Samantha ever marries a werewolf, they will look really good together:

(thanks to Jill for making it happen, and thanks Gregg for being a good sport!  You know I know you're reading this.  Don't worry, I won't tell anyone.)

Awesome! I sometimes think I'm really a 10 year old in a 32 year old body...I literally just finished watching an episode of Wizards with Gregg, aka "Mason" in it :) So glad she got a picture with him!!

He's a cutie! I don't think I've heard of him before.

So cool! And so great that he was kind enough to take a picture with her~ not all celebs are.
Hopefully this will resolve your PB issues (and I don't mean peanut butter!) ;)

Samantha's so brave. Zac wouldn't ask Julian McMahon for a picture. And I was much too chicken.

It was Michael McLean. I know, how lame that I was in love with a mormon song writer! I even had a poster of him in my room! I did get a chance to redeem myself a few years later when i worked with him on "The Forgotten Carols"

They could be a couple, they are both so cute. Way to go, Jill. I would be envious but I have a picture of me with Jack Weylend!

Lisa said...

Wow. Almost like meeting Shaun Cassidy...which I never did, but I really really wanted to. Good for you all! Vicarious thrill for the rest of us. :)
