Do You REALLY Wanna Be Famous? (A School of Rocky Long-Short Story)
Welcome to “Celebrity World”
Here you will be transported into a time where you have become one of the top 10 Most Famous Celebrities in the WORLD according to People Magazine.
Are you ready?
Close your eyes..
WAIT… ummmmmm…. Don’t do that. You can’t read with your eyes closed.
On the count of three..
You wake up in a big fluffy bed. Some of the BEST sleep you have EVER had.
This bed can’t be filled with goose feathers. It’s got to be feathers of an angel or sumn.
You remember before you went to sleep, you had to pay you phone bill.
You check your bank account and it has over 10 MILLION dollars in it.
Excited you hop out of bed and run all over the house screaming, “I’m RICH!”
After hitting your big toe on an end table, you run downstairs to look in the refrigerator for food.
No food. Only moldy takeout plates from expensive restaurants.
“I’ll just go grab some IHOB.”
You grab a random car key from an end table full of keys and slip on your house shoes by the door to walk outside.
You open one of your garage door and see a Black Lamborghini.
A man comes running outside after you and you get scared thinking he is going to have you arrested..
“SIR! I didn’t know you were leaving! Hold on, let me grab my stuff and we can go..”
Confused you reply, “Ummmmmm NO! Ion know YOU! I’m just goin down the street to grab food. I’ll be right back.”
You take off down the street in your new car in the direction of IHOB.
As soon as you pull up, people are staring at your car… You park right up front happy to show off your new ride.
You hop out the car and head in the direction of the restaurant.
You don’t even make it 3 steps away from the car when a swarm of people come rushing at you taking pictures on their cell phones, asking for autographs, crying, screaming…
They push you back towards your car.
You push back just to open your car door again, hop back in, and quickly lock the doors.
The growing mob of people start rocking your car from side to side begging you to get out.
One girl starts hitting your passenger window crying, “PLEEEEEASE!!! I just want a picture… PLEASE just ONE picture.”
You honk your horn and slowly start to back out the parking spot to head to McDonald’s thinking maybe you should just go through the drive-thru.
“McDonald’s… What do YOU WANT?”, the voice on the other side of the loudspeaker screams.
“Lemme get one of EVERY breakfast item on the menu..” ::cause money aint a thang..::
“Has anyone ever told you that you sound like… nevermind sir.. That’ll be $41.50..” she responds.
You pull up to the window and she screams… “OH MY GOD! IMA PASS TF OUT! I KNEW IT WAS YOU!!! EVERYBODY… HE’S HERE… OH MY GOD!!!! I CAN’T BUHLIEEEEEEVE DIS!!!!! LOOK YA’LL!!! HE IN PAJAMAS… I GOTTA BE DREAMIN!!!”
“Ummmm…. Ma’am can I just get my food please..” you ask her irritated because you are HANGRY as hell now.
“Yeah yeah hold on… I gotta get a picture! DEIDRA!!! GIRL! YOU NEVER GUESS WHO IS AT THE DRIVE-THRU WINDOW… I THOUGHT HE WAS RICH BUT ION KNOW… MAYBE HE HAVIN MONEY PROBLEMS OR SUMN CAUSE HE RIGHT HERE!!!!”
What seems to be EVERY SINGLE PERSON in McDonald’s comes rushing out of the restaurant..
Here we go again..
You slowly drive through the crowd that is now taking pictures of your car and peeking into your window to try to get a better picture..
Upset and hungry, you drive back towards the house.. Maybe you can get somebody to just pick you up something.
As you are driving back home, it hits you.
You might not EVER be able to eat at a restaurant again..
You might not EVER be able to just pop in a bar or club for a couple drinks with your friends or go to your niece’s birthday party at Chuck E Cheese.
You might not EVER be able to just go to the club and grab some nasty Taco Bell afterwards cause it’s so late.
No more going out with your Mom on Mother’s Day..
All this money to NOT worry about paying the WHOLE family’s bill at the table and you can’t even enjoy the food with them…
TO BE CONTINUED…
