At the interval of The Crucible me and my friend Emily walked around and she thought she saw Simon Amstell but we fucked up his name cos we were really drunk and thought he was called simon armitage (we had Richard Armitage on the brain because he’s in the play) so I went up to simon and asked if he was simon armitage and because I got his name wrong he said kind of, so I asked if I could take a photo of my friend and him. I took it but people kept walking in front so I said at least three times “sorry there’s people” or “sorry my phones fucked up so it takes ages” so I was just standing there swaying slightly on the spot for at least a minute. I eventually got a photo and he was about to walk away but I asked him for a selfie with the three of us so we took the photo then told us he was going to go to the toilet now.
when ur walking by people and they laugh
