Hey Good Looking

Man pointing at reflection in mirror

You people have no idea of what a burden it is to be me.  As a recognized leader of the Free World, as well as a damn fine dancer and all around bon vivant, I am also hampered by the crippling effects of being too damn good looking for my own good.

Sure, you laugh, but you have no idea of what a detriment this can be.  It’s bad enough that I have to live with it…it’s another that I have to live up to everyone else’s expectations for someone as fortunate as I.

Yes, of course, I’m being (mostly) sarcastic here, but I just read an interesting article about how being good looking might actually work against you.  If you saw how I was dressed for work today, you’d realize that I have little about which to worry.

Please take a few moments and read this article from The Ladders; I think you’ll find it enlightening.  Me…I’m going to go black out a tooth or two.
