Yes, that’s a picture of a famous person.
To respect her privacy and hide her identity, for this blog post, we’ll call her “Lisa“.
“Lisa” is a very famous and well respected voice-over talent and she’s – like I said – famous. She has a model-handsome boyfriend, she has a Westminster Dog Show champion dog, she lives in a mansion with a moat and burns dollar bills for kindling when her staff builds her a bonfire in her living room…just because.
She is beloved by millions including this writer.
Time magazine (yes, evidently magazines ARE still published, to be read in Dentists offices I suppose) just printed a fairly lengthy article seeking “Lisa’s” opinion on US-Russian relations, the economy, fall fashion trends and something or another about voice-over.
But the thing about “Lisa” that you don’t know (and that I do know) is that in spite of all her self-evident glamour and intelligence, she is perfectly normal. Having supped and lunched with her occasionally on her way up the ladder of success I know these three things:
1. She belches like a World War II sailor at the end of a shore leave in New York City
2. She also swears with the deftness of said sailor
3. She has an unnerving affinity, nay, love for extremely unattractive mesh trucker hats
You may be able to say one or two of these things about other famous, not normal people like Beyonce, Lady Gaga or Hillary Clinton…but not all three things.
Therefore, famous people are just like you.
