What is Tom Hanks Thinking Right Now?
I want to share something with you
I have this personal game that I like to play when I am alone and it is a great time-killer. My strange game is entitled, “What Is Tom Hanks Thinking Right Now?” This is the title of my story today, but when and if you want to play this game you can use your own choice of actors. No matter whom you choose, the game works. Even with animal actors.
I know, without anyone telling me, that me “actually” knowing what Hanks is thinking at this moment is impossible even for those who are gifted with E.S.P. But the fun of this game is that this game is not illegal. That’s right. You can sit in an airport waiting area and play this game or if you are in a crowd listening to someone delivering a speech, you can play this game without fear of interrupting or annoying anyone.
Would you like to see me take a run at this game? Right now? Okay. For the first-time ever in HubPages history I proudly present . . .
“What is Tom Hanks Thinking Right Now?”
- “I wonder if I left my wallet in that cave I had to live in on “Cast Away.”
- “I was “the” star of “Busom Buddies, not Peter Scolari.”
- “My nose seems a tad big—maybe some plastic surgery?”
- “Man, did John Wayne have days like I had on Apollo 13?”
- “My wife thinks that I am addicted to potato chips simply because I sunk a million dollars into a company.”
- “I think that Madonna had a thing for me in “A League of Their Own.”
- “I hate how I look in my wife’s Capri pants.”
- “I resent that table of college students not crawling me for an autograph today. Don’t they know my name?”
- “I will not star in the remake of “The Real McCoys,” even if they offer me the part of “Luke.”
- “I don’t like how Gary Sinise yelled at me in “Forrest Gump.”
- “And why did my wife expect me to mow the grass after I finished filming “Cast Away? I am a star!”
- “I look ragged when I wear blue jeans. Stars like me should always wear pleated pants. Even at a neighborhood barbecue.”
- “Is David Letterman ever going to call?’
- “Would this container of squeeze mayonnaise really . . . .(splat!)? Yep. It will.”
- “What did Conan O’Brien mean by “I” would be great as “Matt Dillon,” in a remake of “Gunsmoke?”
- “Think I will go out to the patio and do some oil painting. I love to paint vegetables.”
- “Where’s my wife? She has been gone from home for two weeks?” “Ahhh, yes. We are currently separated.”
“Who in creation is Kenneth Avery, and why did he send me the name of his writer friend, sheilamyers?”
Final Question: Are you sure that you locked your doors before you left for vacation?
