I never had the right connections. And I didn’t have the right parents. If I’d had I’d have been a star – but I didn’t and I’m not.
I’m not complaining – well, maybe I am, but it won’t do me any good.
And since it’s been this way since the Garden of Eden I doubt it will be changing any time soon.
It’s the lucky few with the right connections, or born into the right family, or had the right college roommate who go from obscurity to stardom in one quick step – or seem to. And who knows whether it’s true or not or how they got there – they’re there.
Am I jealous?
Yes and no.
Sure it seems like it would be a lot easier if I had connections, but since I don’t I’ll just have to do it the old-fashioned way and make my own connections. And when I do, I’ll leave it to others to wonder if I were born with the right connections, or with the right parents, or the right roommate.
