I just had a friend throw me under the bus to increase her access to a celebrity. I’ve seen it happen before, but this time it was in a fairly short period of time. I suppose I should be happy that it happened quickly. I didn’t waste any more time on the friendship. But it’s still hurtful — and more to the point, puzzling as hell.
Why would someone want access to a celebrity? To know them? As much as I appreciate a number of different celebrities, I honestly wouldn’t go out of my way to meet them. I’ve met celebrities. They’re just like everyone else. Their luminous glow will not rub off on you. Do you want bragging points? Are those really worth destroying friendships?
Stuff I do not understand — stuff I will never understand.
