Remember that little girl who thought she was going to the water park but, instead, was on her way to see Lorde? Yeah, we thought she had the best day ever at the time, but now that title has been usurped -- by... her?
"How?" you might ask, your fists clenched at your sides and veins popping from your forehead. "What could possibly be better than taking in a performance by LORDE?! Oh! she of purple lips and dark, dark dreams?!"
Well, I would say meeting Lorde trumps just seeing Lorde any day -- and that's exactly what 12-year-old Alexis J. got to do. Did you pass out from jealousy yet? We'll give you a second to procure smelling salts.
"So, they met last night and it was a beautiful thing," Lorde's rep posted to Instagram. "This is that little 12-year-old from Atlanta whose parents surprised her with Lorde tickets a few weeks back. What a smart little girl, 12 and already has a book published! 'Bailey and the Bully' by Alexis J. It's moments like this that make it all worthwhile #GIRLPOWER."
If you recall, Lorde tweeted a video last month in which Alexis learns that her parents bought her tickets to the 17-year-old "Royals" singer's show. Alexis, hilariously, had believed herself to be on the way to some sort of theme park -- and was only slightly disappointed when she learned the truth. Mostly, she was pretty stoked.
Well, it seems the stoke-a-bility factor was upped Monday night. Look at those smiles! Also, Lorde is wearing overalls, which just makes us happy somehow.
Sadly, we can't all be Alexis, living in that moment up yonder, but we can check out her book (she wrote a book, guys, what are we doing with our lives?), close our eyes and dream...
