Marylu, a friend of Daniela’s, has given us her story of her first ever Meet and Greet! Marylu, you are among friends here who know exactly what it’s like to angst over getting ready to meet these adorable young men face to face only to go speechless in their presence! Been there…done that!! Your photo is lovely!
A few days ago, the photos of the Meet & Greet of the Pula concert were published. Of course I was very curious to see what the camera had captured of all of my previous existential torment and before archiving DEFINITELY the subject, I would like to share some considerations.
I say I expected worse. However, in the photo you clearly see my falsely serene expression, and a faded smile (and patience if at that precise moment I remember having had a moment of pure joy but I obviously guarded jealously without letting it leap out) . On the other hand I notice the Ordinary Sun Smile in Ignatius’s face and these are satisfactions.
Inspired by the painting “Girl with a pearl earring” and sorry if it is a little, I would like to give the title to the photo “The girl (old) with the earring (that’s enough). In the sense that I had only one: the other was quietly on my bedroom’s furniture. Yes, because I had a last-minute setback, I had to prepare for the concert in just a few minutes. And in a hurry, as I was trying to do three things together, as often happens to us multitasking women, I thought it good to wear only one, without obviously realize: being confused at the end of the evening had already started home unfortunately! When I arrived at the destination someone made it known to me, but I did not give too much importance. I could at least have taken off the surviving earring before the fateful moment we know, but honestly, I had other things to think about. For example how to control anxiety growing ..
And what about the look in general ?! Always in the hurry I wore the first thing that came to my hand (it always says so ..) Now I do not say a dress for evening, of which there is no trace in my wardrobe, even to look scrupulously , but at least the minimum trade union for these cases: an elegant dress, some makeup, a visit from the hairdresser, maybe a heel shoe! Zero of all this: I also wore a pair of old dancers, even tuned to the rest of the clothing, and well that they do not see in the picture.
But how? I say … Do I get the chance of life, even though I do not know, and I am totally inadequate? Morale says: never give anything for granted in life. Better find yourself ready always, you never know what awaits you at the end of the night: in the future at least have shoes with the heel always on foot, without losing sight of any chronic backache, and a last look also escaped the mirror before leaving home for remedies of the last moment.
Returning to the earring, now that I also think Ignazio uses only one: that I did it to unconsciously attract his attention? .. Who can say it? It could be a hypothesis with a certain foundation !!
After the release of this entertaining meeting, I and Marylu exchanged a couple of comments.
Daniela = I saw you, you were fine, and the solitary earring seemed beautiful. But instead I wonder, there is a cross of arms behind you, but of course everyone comes out their hands, your no, is over under Ignazio’s t-shirt?
Marylu = Daniela do not put your finger in the sore !! Do not say below but at least over the t-shirt !! I swear … I have a total void. One thing really embarrassing, not to believe. I remember that as Eliana finished taking the picture, I turned to Ignazio and wondered, but before I kissed him? Because he looked at me how to say .. but does this woman not say hello to me? She makes all this confusion and then she does not even kiss me !!
In doubt I let go .. do not let me think, I feel bad again
