A life less extrodinary...
I was absolutely amazed at all the things I learned about some of my fellow Journalers over the weekend. Many of them posted suprising facts about themselves in their Entries, and then asked their Readers to guess which ones were true. I was... fascinated. I thought about joining in the fun, but after a few minutes I realized that there weren't really many things I could write about, that would shock and/or delight MY Readers. I never worked in a Night Club owned by The Mob like Lanny, from the 'Inside My Head' Journal. I never kissed a member of any famous rock band, like Monica from 'Whoopie! My Life Is Gonna Be Perfect' did. My father was never stationed with Elvis Presley in Germany like Sherry's dad from 'The Secret Life Of A Stay At Home Mom'. I did see a picture he had taken with Roy Rogers at a pigeon race, but somehow, that's not as exciting as Elvis. And... I've never been given a memento from Mickey Mantle himself, been helped to the Ladies'Room through a crowd by Howard Stern, gotten a Thank You Card from Barbara Walters, ever discussed politics with Bobby Kennedy, or ever, EVER missed an opportunity to have dinner with Mel Gibson like my friend Angela, author of 'My Thoughts' did. Angela did ALL of those things! I am not a direct descendant of any royalty, world leader, or celebrity. I don't hold any records of any kind in any event. And I've never survived any catastrophe or natural disaster except those that have happened in my own home. No television commercials or Hollywood movies, either. I only hope I have a few stories to bore my grandchildren with when they get older. But I have almost as much fun hearing about other people's adventures as I would if I had them myself. In the Grand Theater of Life I guess we need both performers and audience members. So... I'm not only clapping here... I'm standing up. And to my fellow Journalers and others like them I say... "BRAVO!"
