"COME TO KMART, JONATHAN DAVIS IS HERE"
alright so here's the story lol. i had been a fan for years and dreamed of meeting korn. literally it's all i wished about, anytime i seen a shooting star, the numbers the same on a clock. wishbones, when the clasp of my necklace would come to the front lol. i prayed every night. i had first met fieldy and david in 2003. i was set after that, so happy that happened. i didn't want anything more. in january of 2004 i began to be haunted by the number 118. which i took it as jonathan's bday, i kept telling myself ok. i'm seeing this number WAY too much. something is gonna go on with him, i just know it. i feel it. well this went on for months.
it was july 18th 2004 and i'm at home chatting on korn korner (go figure) haha. my phone rings and it's my friend alicia who was one of my best friends. she says shelly come to kmart right now, i'm like uhhh for what? she's like come here now! jonathan davis is here. i was like alicia shut up, she's like shelly i'm serious please come here. i noticed her voice sounded shaky, so i'm like ok WHAT. i had this feeling of nah this can't be. so i ran put on my slippers and me, my sister and her bf took off fast. kmart was like 5 mins away. so we pull up to kmart, which is always empty here. i notice no special cars or any bus there. so i'm thinking ok IF he was here, he's gone now. this is not happening. they drop me off and go park, i go into the store and i see my friend standing there with the biggest smile on her face, i walk up to her and she shows me what she got which was his autograph and i'm like omg that's his. omg. i said where is he? she said he's at the games. so i take off walking over there, i can't even describe what i was feeling. nerves is one for sure. so im sliding in my slippers haha. im coming up to the games and i seen bud stick his head out of the isle and im like OMG thats bud, i walk a little bit more and i see sleepy and i'm like OMG thats sleepy, i walk a little more and OMFG!!!!! it's jonathan and his son nathan. i was unsure of what to do, so i walked slow past the isle and jonathan noticed me right away and walked a little over to me and stuck out his hand. i think my korn hoodie i was wearing gave it away hahah. he shook my hand and i backed up out of the isle a little bit so he could look at games. i started talking to sleepy and asked them what they were doing in town. he said we are passing through on our way to the first date of the projekt revolution tour. i said oh where's the rest of the guys lol. he said they all flew, we drove. he was really cool. jonathan came over to me then and i said hey i've been chatting to u on korner lately, cuz he had been coming on. he goes oh ya "angela?" i'm like haha no that's my friend. i'm shellz, the one with the crazy room. he's like oh yaa. i kept it short so i said i just want to say thank you for everything, he said aww no problem sweetie. i got his autograph on my friends receipt she had got, i totally forgot to grab something to get signed when i left my house. i asked if i could take a picture and sleepy was like no we can't....i didn't realize at that time he said no cuz we were in a store. so i said aww well can i have a hug, he said sure. so after that i said ok ty well i will be going now. so i said bye to them all and i walked off and my friend alicia came up to me when i was walking off. she said are u ok. i couldn't talk, my hands were shaking so bad. i was in extreme shock, i think my mouth was open a little. anyways we walked outside and his bus was there now. i said woah, i'm gonna go buy a disposable camera and take pics of this. so i went back in, bought one. i tried to open the camera fast and i was shaking so bad i couldn't, the cashier had to help me. she goes are u ok, i said do u know who is in the store right now??!!! i go the singer of korn, i love korn. it's crazy cuz i ended up running into that girl at a party a couple years later, she remembered me. but anyways so i go outside and i'm snapping pics in front of the bus. i called up my friend joey to tell him jd was there. he was like wtf for real, im coming over. so we waited for him. he showed up and they hadn't come out yet. he wanted to meet jonathan. while we were there, these 2 girls were out there, asking about whose bus it was, i said it's the singer of korn, they said who is korn? i'm like my favorite band!!!! they go well what's he look like, i said oh u will know which one is him lol. bud came out first and they were like is that him? i'm like no that's not. but i got a pic with bud, he was nice. then jd, nathan and sleep came out. those girls got his autograph and took a pic with him so i was like oh what the heck, pics now? lol. they came by us and joey met him and got his autograph, then they seen me again and i was like is it ok if i get a picture now? they both were like ya. so me and alicia took a pic with him. i told them alright well i'm going to projekt revolution in phoenix so i will be seeing u. they said cool, and they started loading up the bus. i remember i smiled and waved at nathan and he waved back. everyone was really really cool. then we watched the bus drive off......
i was trippin, we got to my house. it felt like a dream. we walked in and i was still logged on in the chat, first things i typed. guess who i just met at kmart? they were all like, who. i said JONATHAN FUCKING DAVIS. everyone was like stfu, the room went crazy. good shit. well everyone was asking me so much stuff, i didnt want to be rude to my friends still there. so my sister took over and was chatting for me lol. we were in my room like, damn how the hell did that happen. what a trip. well i go to look at my autographed receipt lol. he wrote his hiv of course and he wrote peace too. i was curious what was on the back for some reason. i looked and i was like what the hell. directly on the back where he signed was 1.18 and it was circled. thats how much my friend had saved at the store. i was like no fucking way. it tripped me out even more. i said that shit was meant to be. so i thought about it. my friend alicia said she wasn't even gonna go to kmart, but she's like eh i will, she had to go get just diapers. when she pulled up into the parking lot, korn came on the radio and she said it made her want to call me but she said she was going to after she left. so ya one of the best days i've ever had, that store has never been the same lol.
looking back at it, if i had known i was gonna meet him a lot more times, i would have never went. i feel bad in a way that i had invaded his privacy. but shit at that time, i never thought i would ever meet him. thought it was my only time in life. since that day me and jd joke about it now. im his kmart girl, and i always tell him to meet me at kmart
