Anyway, now to get to one of my favorite 'graphing experiences of all time.
About a month ago, I heard rumblings of my favorite actor from my favorite television show, landing the spring lecture spot at UCONN. After seeing the official news, I bought my ticket right when they went on sale to the event which would eventually sell out.
To give some personal background, How I Met Your Mother has been my favorite show since early middle school. I am graduating college in a month, and when it ended last year, it was the first show I had really watched every week from pilot to finale for years. On top of that, Josh Radnor played the lead of Ted Mosby, and eventually created and starred in the movie Liberal Arts, which was a huge independent success, and highly underrated in my opinion.
Although I had never had success meeting someone at this theatre before the show, I decided once again to try my luck since I figured the stage door would be packed as always afterwards. About 40 minutes before the show, a towncar pulled up to the sidewalk(actually down the street from where it should have, and out stepped Josh.
I quickly walked over, and asked Josh to sign a photo. He didn't think twice about it and seemed happy to. After the first, he saw that I had another, and signed that with no problem as well. I couldn't believe that one of my favorite celebrities of all time was being this cordial.
After he signed for me, he asked me where the stage door was and I explained to him how to get to it, and offered to take him to it. He went back to the car to tell his driver he was all set, and when he came back I asked for a photo with him. At this point he seemed a little rushed, but still took a nice photo with me. This was an experience I will never forget.
His lecture was hilarious, and capped the overall experience off in the perfect way.
