Welcome to another post of the Friday Loose Bloggers’ Consortium when eleven of us post on the same topic chosen by one of us. Today’s topic has been chosen by Magpie and I find it extremely difficult to forgive him for having given me sleepless nights since last Saturday. Needless to say, I am looking forward to seeing quite what he had in mind by reading his own post on this dicey subject. Please do visit Ashok, Conrad, Grannymar, Magpie11, Maria, Gaelikaa, Helen, Judy, Anu and Ginger to see ten other views on the same topic. Some of these bloggers may be preoccupied with examinations, family problems and/or romance, so be a little indulgent in case they do not post or post late.
“Fame – a few words upon a tombstone, and the truth of those not depended upon.”
– Christian Bovee
I have never been famous. Not even for a second, leave alone, for fifteen minutes. I would not know what to do if I became famous. It is highly unlikely that I will ever become famous too.
I am well known in some circles. By no stretch of imagination however, could that be called famous. I am also notorious in some circles for reasons, that I leave my readers to speculate on. There too, it cannot be called even remotely anywhere near being famous.
I also keep a safe distance away from famous people, lest some of the fame rubs off on me. I am such a shy person that I won’t be able to handle it. As I write this however, there is a possibility that I may become a professional actor on TV commercials. If that happens, I may still have my few minutes of fame!
My few minutes of fame in the present then, is the time that my readers visit my blog, read and leave a comment on it, whenever they do. It is very satisfying and enough for me.
