I was showing this blog to someone in the web content business and mentioned I had posted something new for over seventy days straight. He seemed impressed. “You’re the kind of man who does what he says he’s going to do.”
It was about the nicest compliment I have received in a while.
As we scrolled down the home page, he saw the cover picture for “Hat Person: A Day in the Life.”
“You look like that singer,” the same guy said. “The one who smokes weed.”
“They all smoke weed,” I said.
“The one with the bandana.”
“Willie Nelson?” someone suggested.
It was about the worst compliment I have received in quite a while.
About five minutes later in a new conversation someone said I looked like Luke Skywalker at the end of “The Force Awakens.”
Wow. Mark Hamill is almost 15 years older than me. That, and screenwriters inserted a fight with a Bumble in “The Empire Strikes Back” to explain away facial damage from a motorcycle accident between the first two Star Wars movies. Still, a Jedi I look like.
I’ll take it.
