That's all I had to see really, and I knew. I was chatting later with my friend and I said he was wearing a hat and sunglasses and she was like, so how could you possibly know for sure it was him? Your always going on about how every guy here is tall and looks kind of like him so probably it was one of those guys and you are just freaking out as usual. But I knew.
Because what was partly so weird is that I felt like I saw someone I knew on the street. Not something that happens here a whole lot, on account of not knowing so many people. So for the first maybe seven seconds that I could actually see him my brain WASTED TIME going, oh hey, that's... that guy I know! Hi! Wait... oh crap... I don't know him, don't wave, don't say hi, just... oh hell he's gone.
I didn't take a picture, mostly because I was inside a cafe and he was on the street outside and I just looked up and he was in the window, framed like on a stage just for me. I would've had to scrabble in my bag for my phone, leave my lunch on the table and race outside and given that his one footstep covers about half a block would have had to run half a marathon to catch him up by that point, and we all know I own the fangirl thing, but that's a step too far even for me. Plus, I was hungry.
So I just saw him, for a second, through a window, but that was enough. I don't want to be his friend and maybe even talking to him would have ruined things, what if he was impatient or annoyed that some random American wanted his time when he was actually on a break from America and I just couldn't get over that? Seeing him with my own two eyes is just okay.
His lips are even more sensual in real life. Just needed to add that.
