Alright my lovelies, it’s STORY TIME! And this one involves a British Benedict Cumberbatch. Yes, you read that right. ;)
Okay. So you know how there are musical shows at night on cruises? Well, my sister and I go to everyone of them, or at least try to. On the first night, I saw that one of the performers looked a bit like Benedict, but didn’t look too closely because I was too occupied looking at the taller-lanky-redhead also performing…I’m crazy. BUT I DIGRESS.
Then the next night, we went to the pre-show, which is where the audience is included in the performer’s act and we got to hear their speaking voices. Benedict- which is what I referred to him as because I didn’t know his real name, and come on why wouldn’t I- turned out to be british. HE WAS BRITISH OH MY LORD. So I turn to my sister, and FREAK THE HELL OUT THAT THIS GUY LOOKS JUST LIKE BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH AND HE’S BRITISH OH GOD. So that was when I made it my mission to tell find him on the cruise and tell him that he looks like Benedict.
I had seen him a few times, but didn’t have the chance to tell him because there would be a line of people behind me, etc etc.
BUT FINALLY on the night of the Illusionist’s performance, the Cruise Director comes out afterwards and tells us that we can get pictures with them. I didn’t think it would be ALL of them, just the Illusionist, but I was wrong. It was all of the performers.
I was like, “YES! This is my chance!” And I was freaking out, but oh well. I had to tell him.
After we took the picture with everyone,
(that’s my lil’ brother next to me) There is Benedict on the right, next to my head!
I signaled Benedict out and went up to him and said,
"I’ve been meaning to tell you this but I haven’t had the chance. And I’m not just saying this because you’re British, but you look like Benedict Cumberbatch!"
And I was like FINALLY I told him! Yay!
He looked at me straight in the face and said,
This was my face:
Who? WHO?!?! YOU ARE BRITISH MAN. HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW.
I was seriously stunned and then the performer on the far right (who happened to be American) yelled over to us and was like, “Sherlock! She’s talking about Sherlock!”
I said, “See? He knows who he is!” And I was laughing because this whole situation was hilarious.
Then he was like, “Sorry, darling! I’ll definitely have to look him up now! What’s his name again?”
And I said Benedict Cumberbatch and his face told me he was not going to remember that at all. Haha
Here is a close up of him, (whose name turned out to be Chris. How anticlimactic. Sigh.)
Tell me that doesn’t look like Ben! IT TOTALLY DOES! Plus, he’s British. And EVERYONE knows Benedict. C’est la vie, I guess!
But yes. I think I laughed two days straight after all of that happened.
Story time is over, folks. I hope to one day meet the real Benedict Cumberbatch and tell him this. I feel like he’d get a kick out of it. ;)
imagine spock going back to vulcan to be honored with an award for scientific excellency or whatever
and even though its an award ceremony its still very solemn theres no clapping or cheering when people come on stage
finally its spocks turn and as he bows to the high priest and straightens up to receive his medal he hears a REALLY LOUD whistle from the audience
and he turns around and jims in the middle of all these stone faced vulcans like
