I just came across this pic of me posing besides the BeeGee’s star on the Walk of Fame Hollywood. It reminded me of a story of when I worked in TV.
It was Twickenham UK. I was working for a well known TV company. I waltzed into the main office one day as a matter of routine. The BeeGees came on the radio and I started goofing around doing my best John Travolta, much to the amusement of the secretaries.
Just then the M.D. and self appointed Matriach entered from her adjoining room. Everyone stopped and stood to attention, everyone except me of course. “Do you like the BeeGees .” I said. Well, you could have heard a pin drop. “Follow me ” she grimaced.
I followed her to her office she sat on her throne and I stood infront of her desk guarding my unservered head. “Look behind me” she said. “What do you see?”
I couldn’t believe my eyes. On the wall behind was a home pic of her standing under a Christmas tree, and next to her was Barry Gibb.
She explained that they were good friends and often spent Christmas together. I exited the room with a wide grin on my face and I became a favorite of her’s, much to the surprise and envy of the office.
I guess the moral of the story is ..no matter what, just be yourself and you’ll always end up on top.
