I just want to see that title show up in people's reading lists.
It's time for a new holiday. "Talk like a pirate day" caught on, but what has there been lately? It got me thinking: most people spend their entire lives trying not to embarass themselves, when it's very liberating. I should know; I do it all the time... and then I tell people. So, I'm declaring Friday, July 31 "National Admit Something Embarassing Day."
Just to whet your appetite:
There was an episode of "Seinfeld" wherein George Costanza declared that, if he were a porn star, he'd be named Buck Naked. That led to the following conversation.
Steve: I know what my porn star name would be.
Alice: But you're already Mr. Quick.
Steve: Very funny.
Alice: Han Solo is probably copyrighted.
Steve: Are you finished?
Alice: Some porn star! You should know when a woman's finished.
(I don't remember what name I thought of. Maybe it was Major Cummings.)
Someone, somewhere, came up with the automatic porn star name generator. You take the name of your first pet and the name of the street you grew up on. It doesn't work if you grew up on RR 1. I've always lied about what mine is. Until now. It's....
Thank you, Congressman Frank, for making my life a little more embarassing.
