It’s only been two days, and I feel like this is already old news. I was going to publish this yesterday, and I had the whole entire post written except for the featured image, but, thanks to the school wifi, I wasn’t able to post it and it didn’t save a draft.
So, anyway, the other day I was scrolling down my Facebook feed when I saw a picture of John Green pretending to look like the guy from the movie “Her.” There was also a screenshot of a comment on this picture. A user, known as TheAutisticGuitarist, commented on YouTube, “I loved you in ‘Her.'” That user is Desmond, my boyfriend.
So I really love John Green, saw the movie “Her”, and am the girlfriend of the guy who got the shout out. That counts as “kind of” right? And just in case there are any doubts (because let’s face it, it’s really easy to make this kind of thing up), here is a picture of Desmond and I last Halloween, where he is wearing the same hat as he is in is YouTube profile picture.
When I found this out, I called Desmond immediately and told him. When he saw Green’s post, he didn’t freak out like I did. He laughed and just thought the whole thing was a big joke. A world famous author mentioned him on social media, and he was laughing.
So this just goes to show that any normal day can turn into something extraordinary. You could just be sitting on the couch and all of a sudden your boyfriend gets mentioned in a post by John Green.
