Encounters With Celebrities/Farrah Fawcett/Elbow

June 25th of 2009 was one of the strangest days that I've ever experienced. I was walking by the hospital where Farrah Fawcett died but she hadn't died yet. There was a bunch of paparazzi standing outside while waiting for word. The hospital was called St. John's and it's in Santa Monica. A few hours later was when someone told me that Michael Jackson had a heart attack and then it was confirmed that he died as well. There was one other celebrity who died within the vicinity of that time but I can't remember their name.

I met Farrah Fawcett back in 1999 when I was in a friend's car and we were sitting in traffic. An elbow was sticking out of a Porsche Boxster and I told my friend that it was Farrah Fawcett's elbow. He didn't believe me at first so we then pulled up beside her and there she was. She looked at me and I asked her if she needed me to wash her car because it was dirty.

My friend was astounded by that. I don't how in the world that I did recognize her from her elbow but I guess that I have a talent for that. I wasn't a particularly a big fan of her work but I did admire her beauty. She had that cowgirl look to her. She must've been in a lot of pain when she died and was probably going through a lot because of her son's legal troubles. He is serving time in jail now but was given permission to leave the jail to visit his mom.
