What Happens Next?: Unexpected Showering Object

The scene for the first WHN? prompt:
You walk into your house/apartment expecting nobody home, but the second you walk in the door you know something is up: There’s a jacket tossed over the back of the couch, a giant duffle bag is sitting on the coffee table, and you smell food cooking in the oven, plus there’s a couple of empty beers on the kitchen counter. None of this scene is typical for your home. Then you realize you hear the shower running. You cautiously proceed into the bathroom, and (because you have clear glass shower walls and door), you see there is a man in the shower. But not just any man. This man is a Big-time Celebrity. Mr. Celebrity (you can name whomever you choose) smiles enthusiastically when he sees you, but doesn’t say a word. What happens next? Write the next scene or finish the story (“you” can be a fictional character, or yourself, but the story should be told in 1st person).

Confused and embarrassed, I closed the shower door. Johnny Depp finished his shower and came out, with a towel wrapped on his waist. And with a big smile, he said “Hi!”

I remained where I stood, not knowing what to say and what to do. “Oh, hi,” I said eventually. “Sorry for trespassing on your property…but you see, old habits never die. I used to own this flat and I forgot to give up one of the keys. This afternoon, a lot of things happened in the office that I was rattled, not being me. I just wanted to come home and relax. Subconsciously, I was brought here… really, really, sorry.”

“No problem, that was interesting!” Johnny said charmingly. “Take it easy now and relax, no harm done. Would you like something to drink?”

And that was the start of a beautiful friendship.
