    Ah! I can't believe I'm confessing this story for every one to see. Has something like this ever happened to you?

    On Nov 3rd I went to see SNC and had the time of my life. It was so awesome and I was so happy that I would be able to meet all the guys after the show. They are my inspiration and I was super excited to see them all. Thankfully we were almost to the very beginning of the line so we didn't have to wait to long but that might have not been such a good thing. I still couldn't believe Ihad just seen SNC and my brain couldn't process the awesomeness so I was a little hyper if you might say. Jerome and Mike were first in line and I wanted my pic with them. So I asked my friend to take it and at risk of her not taking a good pic, I handed my purse and jacket to a total stranger. After she took it, I walked off not even thinking that my purse was still with this stranger. Luckily, Ryan and Charlie pointed out that I was missing something and made a joke of it before I could turn 10 shades of red. So if you're out there stranger thank you for bearing with me while I made a total nut out of myself. I guess I was a tiny bit swept away with the current. I really do have common sense in the normal world.

lol so i had a similar experience at the Chicago show tonight -- the signing line just went so FAST! One second I was talking to Seggie and Charlie at one end of the table, the next I was taking a quick pic with Jerome at the other end of the table, and the next I was on the train back to my apartment, realizing I LEFT my signed cd/dvd on the table!! D'oh!!

But yeah the whole M&G was such a blur -- I meant to get a picture with Mike but I didn't even say a word to him! But it was a lot of fun anyway and next time I'll pay more attention, lol.

oh it totally happens to all of us. i usually say something stupid about how wonderful they are and about how wonderful they are...and about how...well, you get the picture. So you are in good company.

Went through the M&G in Evansville for my do-over. I was smart this time and brought my Nashville tickets to be signed as well as Eville. This was a great conversation starter as they signed tickets that said the Ryman. When I got to Mike, I was able to not only look at him but talk as well! He was so great! I just love that man!!! I can't wait till the spring so I can talk to them again!

I know exactly what you mean! At my first M&G, Jerome & Mike (my two favs) were first at the table. With this being my & my neice's 1st M&G, my brain went into "stupid" mode and was soo star struck, I dare not really say anything because I was afraid of what was going to come out of my mouth. But at the next ones I was actually able to talk to them all. I am soo glad I was able to compose myself and not sound like an idiot. They should keep Jerome first, as he really knows how to calm you down.

Unrelated...I keep thinking this thread is about me. LOL (my twitter username is StarstruckCanuk)

Super excited because my friend and I are going to the Toledo show in April!! I'm so excited that I get to have a do-over and get to talk to all the guys!!

I am hoping in Evansville that I will have the opportunity to have a "do over". I am taking my mom with me and this actually may be a problem. The show is sold out and my mom is unable to stand for any length of time plus if I start acting (for lack of a better description, "like a girl") she will tell me that I am being silly and to grow up (I'm 34). I am hoping that it will all work out and I am worrying over nothing. I love my mom and I want her to see them BUT I may not have thought this through. If indeed I do get a "do over" I will try to keep in mind everything that Ryan said in his 5 questions, that they don't consider themselves celebrities and that they are real people. Ryan, I hope your first at the M&G so that I can be put at ease.

Ha, ha! That's funny. It does happen to me, but not because I'm star struck any more. I seem to be leaking brain cells! But, I'm sure everyone on here knows exactly what you are talking about!! Glad you had a good time!

Yea I definitely want a do over. I skipped over a few of guys (Sorry Randy, Walt, and Don) that I really wanted to talk to.

My kids were tired & starstruck when they went thru the m & g line this summer, and i was too busy "herding" them along to realize they weren't saying much. I would love to have a do over so they could talk! I waited too long to realize the Hershey, PA matinee show next weekend would give us an opportunity, and it was sold out when I tried to get tix. I keep hoping someone will suddenly have 5 extras, but that's definitely a long shot. I'll get them to another show eventually.

DanaEbstein's picture

At least you looked at them! I wasn't able to because I was so freaking scared and star struck!!! Next time I will LOOK at them AND TALK at the same time!!! lol

I'm always the one to make fun of the girls that lose their minds when they see a star. I never ever thought I would turn out to be one of them!

EileenR's picture

Ha! That's awesome. Glad it turned out okay.

Last Saturday was my 3rd concert (and therefore 3rd M & G) and I still felt tongue-tied!! Sure, I chatted with the guys but I felt like my mind couldn't process anything....all I could do was stare (and pray I wasn't drooling!)

I know that's what I thought. I must have tripping some SNC acid or something. I think I was on Cloud 100 that night. My friend and I still haven't stopped talking about it.

Sounds to me like you were floating on the same cloud as I was the next evening: Cloud 10!! Glad you had the time of your life @HailCesar87 and that you got to go through the M&G! That was so awesome of Ryan and Charlie to look out for you like that! What gentlemen!
