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:
