Swaying My Way
y y
To Instant Stardom
Ever pick up a paper and read about the quarterback who tosses
around irrational integers as easily as a football? Then there's the
72" hulk who was a wee bit too short for the peanut squad when
he was in high school. And don't forget about the ball player who
gave up a promising career as a concert pianist to shag flies.
Those are real stories. The kind that get you right somewhere.
And there are several more just like them. But why do they all
belong to the guy who wears sunglasses because he's stingy
with his autographs? It seems like a man can't make the big time
if his life reads like the backs of an IBM card. When straight and
narrow fellows slip on shades it will only be to prevent an annoy-
ing squint.
Nietzsche never told me pedestination was still alive, but why
do all the stars make the best story.
Couldn't Johnny Desmond be the one to make off with Mia
Farrow. Why didn't George Gipp just catch the mumps his last game.
And why didn't Thomas Edison's education consist of a C average at
Menlo Park State Teachers.
It seems awfully unfair that a qualification for greatness is
a biography that can make Walter Winchell drool. The hypothesis
seems sad but true:
For me it was a shattering realization until I learned how to
overcome it. My life has always had one main goal of success. I
wouldn't let myself be stymied by striped ties and a button down
home town. True, I won't water ski down the Snake River, I can't play
pinochle with my right foot, and I have no desire to collect used razor
blades. I'm not an oddball, fruity, different or unique.
But if one truly desires to be famous, he will find a way to meet
the entrance exam-he will spare no effort to peel away his coating
of normalacy. I can produly say, I have met the test and now await
my big moment.
You see, I walk funny. I am the possesor of something novel
in man's most ordinary activity.
Forever my gait has 'been a florescent blotch on my opaque
exterior. I have been ashamed to walk across the street when cars
were watching. But now I realize it is the key to my future. When
reporters come to interview me, I merely have to waddle past them,
and I will be assured of fame.
The realization was thrilling. After enduring the pain of hearing
my mother scream, "You walk like a duck," I can retort, "Stop being
jealous of your son and figure out your own gimmick." No more do I
have to turn crimson when I hear giggling behind my uncertain foot-
steps. People have asked me if I have webbed feet and suggested that
water rolls off my back. Others point out that I'd fail a sobriety test.
I couldn't follow a white line.
Perhaps people can accept their incredible commoness with
greater comfort when they chastize those above them. Let them
laugh-all the strutters, trotters, stalkers, gallopers, marchers.
Some people just never make the big time. I am secure, content,
and patient. The world will not pass me by. I have what it takes
to get to the top. I might sway a bit on the way but I'll get there.
Every step, erratic as it may be, leads me in the direction of
success.
So if :you see an ordinary looking fellow on the street one day,
take a close look. Should his perambulation seem a bit in the mallard
tradition with a trace of Chaplin around the-toes, titter if you wish.
But I warn you: such derision will only be temporary.
The waddlers shall inherit the earth.
