Celeb for a Day

Goodness knows I have my problems. Well, maybe one. You know, the predictable "I work too hard" answer for a job interviewer's question about weaknesses. And then there's my second problem: I'm too humble. Some say that I'm also disturbingly blind to my own faults.

Point is, I ain't perfect. But I am grateful, hopefully not in the Luke 18:11 sense, that I'm not one of the poor souls who are willing to shell out a couple grand to be hounded by the paparazzi for an hour, in order to experience the celebrity life. I mean, I can't even stand talking to the historical actors in Colonial Williamsburg, because NO YOU AREN'T PATRICK HENRY, KNICKER-GUY, SO JUST PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE!!! I mean what does a regular joe in a tricornered hat have to do to enjoy his authentic colonial gingerbread cookie and replica musket in peace?? I certainly cannot imagine walking around similarly pretending to "be somebody" while hired paparazzi make a public scene about me, so that gawkers might be envious. That's just sad.

Note: To any of you who *are* historical actors, I do say Thank You on behalf of my kids who eat that stuff up and learn a lot at the same time. It's just not my bag; I mean no offense. But ... if you hire faux paparazzi to follow you around in your ruffled shirt and powdered wig, then, yeah, you really do have problems.

Almost or equally as bad as hawking off your baby to the highest-bidding tabloid:

It's the powdered wigs and ruffled shirt angst that would seem to suggest a certain, how shall we say it, insecurity in young Thornburgh?

A real man can feel right at home with a little ruffle here and there. I just get this police brutality thing from this posting somehow, like maybe Officer Thornburgh enjoyed roughing up some who didn't measure up to his supposed standard of manhood. Just a thought.
