A tiny brush with fameWoman in the Middle | November 30, 2013
Our family was distressed to hear that Paul Walker, an actor best known for his role in the Fast and Furious movies, died in a car crash. He was our celebrity! While it seems from magazines and the internet that Southern California is just crawling with celebrities, they certainly aren’t out where we live. So it greatly amused our family when Youngest Daughter had a brief brush with Paul Walker back in 2009.
Youngest Daughter had fun when she went to a Hurley fashion competition between four area high schools, including her own high school. One of the judges was an actor named Paul Walker, someone Youngest had barely heard of since she had never seen “Fast and Furious.” After the show was over, Mr. Walker was walking past Youngest and her friend when a group of girls decided to start chasing him. In order to escape his fans, Walker broke into a run, pushing past Youngest and her friend in the process. Youngest went to school the next day and told all the girls that Paul Walker had pushed her! High school girls being high school girls, they all corrected her and told Youngest that Paul Walker had TOUCHED her. Needless to say, they were all jealous.
