If you ever are so blessed as to cross paths with Penelope Cruz make sure to tell her, "Sus bolsas de diversion se ven como dos bellas burbujas." The hispanic man that lives on my block told me it means, "I am a big fan of your work." I was planning on telling that to her myself, but as the years go by it becomes more and more unlikely. I figure someone out there is going to run into her so they might as well be the one to say it to her. In return I only ask that the meeting be recorded so that I may view it at a later date. I have a feeling that it will be quite memorable even if I am not involved. Sometimes it is still satisfying to live vicariously through others and in this instance I think it could be even more so. One of these days I am going to actually learn Spanish so that I can come up with my own lines for meeting women. Until then I guess I will have to depend on the kindness of strangers.
