So I met Mr. Darcy
I’m not kidding
I’m 100% serious…not a cosplayer or cardboard cutout or twitter handler whatever else you are thinking. I mean An honest to God flesh and blood Mr. Darcy.
I am 100% telling the truth!
So two years ago I wrote a post on how I met a Mrs. Darcy at work and was wondering what her husband’s name was, or if she had sons if she named them William or Fitzwilliam.
So the other day, she comes back into the library with her husband Mr. Darcy.
I know, I fangirled just a bit (inside of course) having met a “real” Mr. Darcy.
Of course he wasn’t Laurence Olivier:
Or Colin Firth:
He was a grumpy, 80-year old man. Not Austen’s Darcy-although he had the grumpiness down:
I can still say that I have actually met “Mr. Darcy”, so yeah-I feel pretty cool about that.
