Celebrating pretenders

Oscars

Ready or not, here comes the season of the over-hyped celebrity.  The time of year when we can’t get enough award shows that honor people who live in an alternate reality…  a fantasy world, where thinking’s not allowed, where everything is scripted.  Unless it’s not, then it’s called ad libbing and embraced as masterful shrewdness.

Now imagine that we don’t know the names of actors.  The names of people who pretend to be other people.  Who pretend to be cops, teachers, mail carriers, nurses, and plumbers.

Then imagine we honored those who’s every movement is unscripted and ad libbed.  Imagine if we knew the names of those who actually serve us, like cops, teachers, mail carriers, nurses and plumbers.
