|"SCORPIO - The Slanderer"|
I'll never forget being jealous of my grade-school friends who bragged about their shared birthdays with Elizabeth Taylor (Pisces), Paul McCartney (Gemini), and Lisa Bonet (okay, so she's also a Scorpio but has a completely different birthday).
I always wanted to share my birthday with awesome celebrities too; leave it to me to be born on the same day (albeit very different years) as Mackenzie Phillips and Sinbad.
|I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'...|
Don't get me wrong, I've been known to sit through reruns of "One Day at a Time" and I've seen more than my fair share of "A Different World;" incidentally, I would have settled for a co-birthday with Jasmine Guy's Whitley Gilbert (Pisces) or even Dwayne Wayne (Leo)...but Mackenzie and Sinbad?!?! There are no bragging rights in those names. Sure, I could have bandied about the fact that Claude Rains was also born on November 10. Outside of classic-movie buffs and a few teachers, however, I don't think anyone would have given one flying leap about Mr. Skeffington, nee Captain Renault.
|"Dr. Jaquith, I presume?"|
I guess this just means it is entirely up to me to become world-famous and make the tenth of November something truly special. I guess I'll have to be the one about whom schoolchildren brag to their chums.
|It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make...|
Until then, just wish me a "Happy Birthday!"
Okay, so I just did a Google search and, as it so happens, I do share a birthday with Lilly Pulitzer and Ennio Morricone. I guess that relieves some of the pressure to become a household name (phew!); they are both pretty brag-worthy!
