Preparing to Be Famous

By CBramkamp Writing Encouragement Comments Off on Preparing to Be Famous

I am preparing to be  famous.

I watched the film  – the A Team – the other night.  And it reminded me how much I really loved the original.  The show aired from 1983 to 1987, and I may have watched those four years.  We were young, just married and could afford nothing, so TV was our entertainment.  TV has since become more a novelty.  I  work at night teaching and attend events and dinners with friends when I’m not working.  But I enjoyed that time as well, cuddling with Andrew and watching preposterous antics of this group of charming outsiders.

Now, here is the point.  The A Team is not really part of the literary cannon.  Affection for the show is not  something I lead with when meeting people for the  first or even the last time.  What it  can become, however, is a  comment  I can have ready when a People magazine reporter or in an interviewer asks, so what is your dark secret?  And I will pulled out:   I loved watching the A Team in the 80s. The interview can then be quickly re-directed to favorite TV shows and we’ve skipped off treacherous ground  and on to guilty pleasures.

It’s not a rocket launcher, but it can  be effective. And like the A Team, it will get the job done.
