Sorry Jobs For Super Stars
Some things in life literally “fit like a glove.” They go together like a complex jigsaw puzzle. Always a pleasure to be in a “fitting like a glove” situation.
Dating, marrying the right girl or guy, having the best choice in friends, clothes and yes, even jobs, are all “fitting like a glove,” situations.
Then there’s the world of work. And with that observation comes a serious question: Ever take time to just stop and observe people at work? I tell you. Lessons about life and either fitting-in or being out-of-place can be learned rather quickly.
I’ve always enjoyed associating with people that you “just know” are made for their jobs. Carpenters, plumbers, lawyers, and doctors, even preachers to name a few.
Then there are people who seemingly struggle with their jobs when asked to do the most-remedial tasks like walking across the office to give an estimate on a job or explaining the difference in textures of concrete. Purely amateur gigs if you ask me.
I mean, I was never that deep into construction, but at least I “do” know the difference in cement and concrete.
I said all of that to say this.
The same principle can be applied to Hollywood iconic film and televison stars. Some are “just” made for a certain film or primetime show because as I’ve already proven that they “fit like a glove” when entertaining their audiences. Easy, free-spirited and with no sweat to show for their labors.
Example: Red Skelton. Can you really see Red driving a diesel truck from coast-to-coast for living?
Or “sex kitten,” Sophia Loren working as a receptionist in a plumbers supply company.
Didn’t think so. Case closed.
With this story, I wanted to present a few more Hollywood iconic film, television, singing, and athletic stars who are “right” for whatever area of entertainment they perform.
They do their jobs with such ease that I think they are “phoning-in” their acting, singing or feats they do on the gridion or baseball field.
But what if “the tables were turned,” and the superstars (in photos in this story) had, for some reason, not chosen show business or professional athletics for a living?
Ever thought of that? I have. I just love to sit around and think of things like this. Why? Well, I don’t see anyone else doing it.
Read and compare what I have come up with as my story is entitled, “Sorry Jobs For Super Stars,” and see if “I” have answered my true calling or just “whistling in the dark.”

Destination America, a channel on DirecTV, has a new show, Mountain Monsters. The show is about guys who investigate sightings of mysterious creatures reported by average citizens. This is my opinion.
Not many fans of early television ever admit to not liking the "Andy Griffith Show." But me? I have endured a few casting miscues for as long as I can.
At Christmas, how we open our gifts can say a lot about us.
