The Curse of Curves.

I was just thinking how it must be a horrible burden to be good looking. I'm lucky, I guess, to clock in at average. Nothing special, but not unpleasant to look at. Not a Cary Grant, but more of a Ward Bond. Not a Clark Gable, more of a Leslie Howard. Not a Lauren Bacall, more of a young Humphrey Bogart.

You know, passable.

It's strange, everyone I meet knows someone who looks just like me. I have frequently been hailed as a long lost classmate, an old flame, and the father of someone's kid. My dopplegangers must be many and wide spread. I just hope and pray none of these guys ever break the law.

But WOW, it must terrible being really good looking. All the workouts and clothes, the extensive array of hygiene products that you have to keep around, the endless diet. And no matter who you meet, you are always thinking to yourself, "Does this person really want to be my friend or is it just because I am so incredibly good looking?" Not to mention the size of the date book these people must carry. All those phone numbers must be tough to keep track of.

I have no idea how Flannery does it.
Speaking of curves, for your listening pleasure I provide you with "The Curse Of Curves" by Cute Is What We Aim For, from their album The Same Old Blood Rush With A New Touch. (I'm not making this up.) For your visual pleasure I present you some cursed curves.



  1. Gee, you're sweet! Flan's lucky to have you. Btw, are we each supposed to write our _own_ continuation of the story, or should I wait for the people above me? I think it's the former, but pls. let me know. Thx.

  2. I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is.

  3. being in the bottom third of the good-looking curve, I would settle for just a couple of days in the top third, just to try it out.

  4. I'm with Skydad-- I'd like the chance to PROVE that NOT looking like Mortimer-Fucking-Schnerd WON'T ruin me as a person...

  5. Do good looking people think they are good looking????

    Or, do they think they are just an average Joe?

    Beer makes you better looking.

    I am freaking gorgeous after a few.


    Love the blog!!!

  6. Beckeye: I think I love you for that. Let's start a school for kids who can't read good.

  7. I was just getting ready to leave some sarcastic comment about yes, it is REALLY hard. But then you went and said something sweet about your wife and now the moment has passed.
