I am my favourite TV show.
Since two weeks ago, I feel as though I have been walking about with a spotlight permanently showering over me wherever I go.
I get curious stares, knowing nods, courteous smiles, politely-averted gazes, subtle finger-pointing.
Expectations run a mile or so higher than usual. “You do it!” Nudge nudge, wink wink.
Someone told me to enjoy the limelight while it lasts. She could not have been more mistaken.
I would rather curl up in bed at home with a good book, some funky music, a decent movie DVD collection, and plenty of cool dreams involving sunny blue skies.
It is only a matter of time before everyone promptly forgets everything, and we all go back to what, and how we were before. Which, honestly, is not really anything much to begin with.
Save a kitten today. Conquer a mountain tomorrow. Touch a life next. Now that is something.
We need gentle reminders every once in a while, do we not?
