If you’re old enough to remember the ’80s you probably remember the Pantene shampoo commercials where the model flips her hair and says, “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful…” and I don’t remember the follow up. It was something along the lines of, “Hate me because I have better hair than you, drive a nicer car, got into an Ivy League school, have a better looking boyfriend,” etc. Pretty much anything annoying and narcissistic.
Well, today I have to say, don’t hate me because of anything but this:
Recognize Lyle? Imagine him with a gun, a schoolbus and a cow. He was signing autographs and taking photos with anyone who wanted a snapshot (which of course included me) during the annual sidewalk sale they have during Rodeo Weekend.
I’ve had my brush with fame now. Feeling pretty awesome.
