If you didn’t know this already I have a unique fascination for celebrities close to my age, none more so than for the young lady in the title. You should bear in mind there are only three occasions I’ve ever gone full fangirl:
- Messi scoring past Edwin van der Sar
- Meeting Will Smith
I thought that would be all… unfortunately I was wrong. When I saw her on the tube my eyeballs nearly exploded out of their sockets. I’m not proud of what I did next. I went berserk I tell you. Berserk!
ZENDAYA! (In the most rural most excited Shona accent I have within me.) It’s Zendaya!
I did this while shaking the person seated next to me. Perhaps if said person were a stranger I could let it go. It wasn’t a stranger – the person won’t ever let it go. Why? Because Zendaya… wasn’t actually Zendaya. 😅 She just looked an awful lot like her. That’s what I’ve been told. Deep down though I truly wish and feel that it was her. Nah, who am I kidding.
Next time I’ll say actually say hi as opposed to the overly embarrassing behaviour I exhibited.
P.S. the events in this retelling may have been embellished for comedic effect.
