Let’s sit around and talk
Let’s sit down with two friends at brunch
and talk about the most famous people we know:
Well I have a friend who got in Oprah.
No, not IN oprah. In her magazine. O.
Oh. Well I met that comedian you love so much
No! The one who wears plaid and is ironic and wears glasses? Remember? You love him!
Oh! Wow! Ok! Well, I was staying on this organic farm in Hawaii and the woman who owned the place used to be Meryl Streep’s personal chef! She made me breadfruit.
Breadfruit! It’s a fruit but it’s like a potato. She boiled it in coconut milk. Delicious.
Doesn’t count. Meryl Streep might be the most famous person SHE’s met, but YOU didn’t meet anyone famous.
It’s not about degrees. It’s just about fame.
Ok. Well. I used to sleep with someone who’s pretty famous now.
I’m not going to tell that story.
