Some people are magnets. It's nothing we do per say. It's just who we are. Some of us attract wealth. Some of us attract talent, others beauty. It's that magnetic personality you hear of.
I, as it turns out, do have a magnetic personality. I, however, attract morons.
I try to dress nice. I stand up straight. I try to sound some what literate and coherent. I shower on a daily basis.
Today I was talking with a woman about a, "Two. Thousand. Year. Old. Buddha. From. India." Which I pointed out to her, explaining the rarity and value of such antiquities.
She listened to what I had to say, looks me right in the face and asks: "Are you the artist?"
I kid you not. And I said, with out hesitation: "Yes. Yes I am". She nodded and said: "You're very good."
Yes. Yes I am. I am very good at attracting morons.
This is my power. This is my curse!
For the love of God, how do I demagnetize?
