Most people in my life know about my secret addiction. If you’re not in the loop, welcome, because today you are now in the loop. I have been an Enrique Iglesias Super Fan for many years now. There’s nothing like the opening beat to “Escape” – and those piano notes that start “Hero”? Let’s just say that it brings a tear to my eye. (apparently I have only 1 eye)
I recently joined his Fan Club, which I had been wanting to do for a long time, but didn’t have enough money to buy the E.I. Hooded Sweatshirt – so I held off until I could save enough cash. A couple weeks ago it got mailed to my parents house. I made my sister Lisa drive it to Fridley for me – then I wore it all day. And all the next day. And to church the next morning.
When I saw my little sister Emily that Sunday afternoon she looked at my sweatshirt and then at me and replied, “Didn’t you wear that to bed last night?” To which I replied, “SO!?” in a very defendant tone. What can I say? I heart Enrique!
