Where's Willa


Who:  Willa Holland
Where:  Lafayette & W 4th
When: Thursday, June 24th at 6:58pm
Seen In: The OC (Caitlin Cooper), Gossip Girl (Jenny's friend)

She was wearing a white, oversized Ramones t-shirt with skinny black jeans (quite fitting for her skinny stick legs) & chunky, black army boots.  Her hair was up in a loose bun & she was wearing dark bug-eyed sunglasses.  She had the London punk rock / grunge subculture look down to a T.

I was walking home from work (rushing to meet my sister Grace who had just arrived for the weekend) and I was stopped at the corner of Lafayette & West 4th, waiting for the light to change.  A girl around my age, walked up from behind and stopped beside me.  I looked over and did a double take.  I knew her from somewhere!  Oh yes, on my TV screen...

She pushed her bug-eyed glasses on top of her head to rub her eyes. All the confirmation I needed.  It was definitely her.

The light changed and we continued along the sidewalk, walking stride for stride for another three blocks.
Should I say something?
"Oh hey Willa, how've you been?  We've met through a glass screen every Tuesday night at 9pm but I don't know if you remember me."
Slightly creepy that I'm walking beside a girl who's first and last name I can spew like word vomit, yet she has no clue who the heck I am. 
Being a celebrity would be quite strange.

She finally hooked a right on Prince and I continued on my merry way.
