A case of the wannabes: LA’s got it bad

‎"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” – anonymous (but most people think it’s Dr. Seuss!)

Yesterday at the shopping center I saw three high school girls slumped over on the curb, looking thoroughly dejected and whining: “EVERYBODY was invited to the party except us.  I mean EVERYBODY.  Even Lily was invited. She pretended she wasn’t going but I know she did.” And then on the way back to the car I passed them again.  I heard them moaning, “Heather’s never even invited us to hang out!”  I wanted to stop and give those girls a lecture about how they were acting like the plain-bellied Sneetches from the famous Dr. Seuss fable.  Remember how the plain Sneetches sit on the beach ignoring each other’s company, bemoaning the fact that they don’t have stars upon “thars” like the more desirable star-bellied Sneetches?  Didn’t these girls have each other?  Why couldn’t they make their own good times?

This behavior is so typical of LA.  Soon these girls will be bemoaning the fact that the mean bouncer wouldn’t let them into the club, just like every grownup in LA is bemoaning the fact that they couldn’t get into, or afford, the events with Prince William and Kate this weekend. 

Get over it, LA!  There’s no bouncer at the pub on the corner. So why don’t you go there, have a beer, and watch it on TV like everybody else in America?  I bet Kate and William would give anything to be sitting on bar stools just like that, relaxing with nobody watching, just about now.  Instead they’re probably hobnobbing at yet another exclusive soirée.  What a royal pain in the @ss!
