Dream accomplished, well sort of!
I have been a Jordan fan since the age of fourteen and like most of us, I longed to meet him.
I knew exactly what I was going to say to him to ensure we parted great friends with plans to sing a duet together!
Eighteen years later, I was finally able to afford a meet and greet ticket at the Birmingham NIA in 2009 and I was finally about to meet my heart throb. I excitedly put together a small portfolio of song lyrics to wow him with and waited for my dreams to come true.
On arrival we were put into groups of eight and told not to give anything to the boys, we weren't allowed cameras and no kissing because they didn't want to catch colds. Understandable I thought but as I put my lyrics away my heart sank a little.
Once I was in the same room as Jordan, he suddenly had seven girls wrapped around his neck and there was no room for me! I managed to grab a hug from Joe, Danny and Jon before the photographer ordered us to stand in line for a picture. Aware that my moment was passing, I squealed, "I wanna stand by Jordan!" and forced myself next to him. As I stood there with my arms locked around his skinny waist my words got stuck in my throat. I just stared at him all wide eyed like a complete moron!
The photographer had us all face forward and say cheese, I turned away from the glorious features to pose and instead of cheese, Jordan says "Hairy Balls!" Just the words you want your hero to say LOL
I'm not complaining, the concert was amazing and I'm saving up for the next time they come, may be then I'll actually talk :)
