One time I was checking the news, and all of the news outlets said that Candy Spelling (Candi? Candi with a heart over the "i"? Candee?) was mad at Tori Spelling, so Candy Spelling wrote an open letter to a bunch of celebrities that she didn't even know, and all of the news outlets were all, "HOLY COW! This is some serious news!" so they all reported it, and then all of the celebrities found out who Candy Spelling was, and Tori Spelling grabbed her pug and everybody went to Applebees and had margaritas.
You're probably wondering what this has to do with you, and for a minute I was too, but then I remembered what my point was and my point is this: First - open letters to and/or by celebrities move mountains.
Next -you're doing this whole Next Chapter thing, and so am I kinda sorta, and I think this is a perfect time for us to sit down on your couch and share this exciting time in our lives. While you might not think that we have a lot in common, I'd like it to be known that A.) like Tori Spelling, I have a pug, B.) like most celebrities, I love margaritas and C.) I've been to Applebees on more than one occasion. So, it's pretty obvious that I would fit in really well with you and your celebrity friends.
The gang at Applebees, just being famous, hanging out with pugs, drinking margaritas.
Also, as a bonus, I've eaten everything in sight over the past few months and gained more than a few pounds. One of my friends just told me I looked like a potato, so if you were thinking of doing one of those positive thinking weight loss shows, you probably can't go wrong with a potato like me.
I don't want to tell you how to live your life, Oprah, but remember how happy we were when we never visited the Grand Canyon together?
You have my number...
