I was stalking Luke Wilson a couple weeks ago with my friend Laura. I’m a terrible stalker. You know how the bane of the 2013 existence is the inability to put your phone down and pay attention to what is actually happening in real life? Well… while we were stalking Luke Wilson, I looked around the movie set and it made me think of my friend Brian, who I love, but never see, talk to, visit, or email. In fact, I think he gave me the high hat after I did not attend his fortieth birthday. So I texted Brian to say hi and that I was thinking of him, and while we were texting, Luke Wilson walked right in front of me! So close I could have tripped him. Or poked him in the back or something. Or told him I liked his “movie.” Truthfully, I couldn’t really come up with any Luke Wilson movies except Hoot, which the kids had just watched until the DVD started skipping. I asked Siri for some help while I drove to the movie set, but she just said, “Here is a list of 25 movies that feature Luke Wilson.” But when I said ,”read them to me” she just started reading my texts. Which were from Laura, saying she had gotten Luke Wilson’s autograph while I was trying to decide if I should go stalk him or not. So, anyway, I was texting my dear friend Brian, when Luke Wilson walked within tripping distance of me, and I would never even have known if Laura hadn’t dug her nails into my arm.
I could not figure out what I would say to Luke Wilson, so I didn’t talk to him, but it was nice to stand out in the sun with Laura and txt Brian for a while.
