Me and George Michael go way back. Back to the days of Wham!, in fact, when neither my sister or I or any of our friends had a CLUE he was gay. In fact, we loved him so much, that after seeing Wham! in concert at Wembley we waited outside for 3 hours just for a glimpse of him in his coach. We knew every word of every song he wrote. I even had one of those Choose Life t-shirts.
(Before you go thinking I’m like Heather from EastEnders, I should stress that it was all fairly harmless.)
Now anyone who knows me knows that I’m a HUGE twitter fan. And when I saw George had joined I started following – more for the craic than anything.
But this evening, when he invited tweeps to guess which songs he didn’t have a band on in exchange for an RT I saw my opportunity and tweeted…
and to my utter surprise and astonishment he RT’d me.
I’ve waited 28 years. Jitterbug, etc, etc.
