Unwanted Notoriety

This is a local breakfast and lunch place owned by a Greek family. You will find three, maybe four generations at work with young grandchildren bussing the tables. The husband cooks and the wife runs the dining room. She has a long memory.

We occasionally have Sunday brunch there. Several years ago I tripped over that pictured step and went flat face forward on the floor. Every time I eat there, including this morning, she reminds me to, “Watch your step”.

 What to do? I simply thank her and watch my step since I will never live down that one misstep.

"Frank the tank, a man with a plan, cars for the stars, a legend in his own mind".

Do we choose our fame, or does fame choose us?

It's better to be famous than infamous.

I'm afraid I've slipped into Category 2 long ago.

Only thing you can do... Sigh... :-)

And laugh at yourself before anyone else.
