About a year ago I made friends with a lovely girl here at school named Amanda. She quickly become one of my best friends and a couple of months ago I was saddened to see her move to Spain with her fiancee Mario. One thing I always said to Amanda was that if I ever got to visit her in Spain I would most definitely run into my favorite Spanish actress, Paz Vega, in Madrid, a thought which Amanda always welcomed with a laugh and a 'fat chance'.
Last week I got an emergency call at work from Madrid, Spain. Fearing the worst I picked up to find a very excited Amanda on the line telling me I would never guess who she and Mario had just met. "Paz Vega", I slyly replied and suddenly my months of dreaming that she could indeed be easily met in Madrid had a real legitimacy to them.
I typically don't care much for autographs...I have a few and like them but they are only good if there is a story behind them, so this one is most definitely one of my favorites.
A few things I have gathered about Paz Vega from my friend's encounter is:
1. She is very warm and nice.
2. Likes that she has some American fans.
3. Looks even better in person.
4. Rides in an S.U.V.
5. Has the most exquisite skin that Mario has ever seen.
So, a big thank you to my friend Amanda and her fiancee Mario for supplying me with this lovely little piece of paper from one of my favorite actresses and I must admit biggest crushes. I'll probably never get to meet Paz Vega but it is nice to know that if I ever do get to Madrid it is at least possible.
