Give Me Your Best Rationale

No, wait, I'll give you mine first.

Here it is:

"I'm really glad I wasn't blessed with great looks because it forced me to develop character and also to actually achieve something in order to get recognition."

Now I'm not saying there isn't any truth to that, mind you.

I'm just saying that if someone had long ago knocked on my door and said, "Um, we have some great looks for you. Of course, you might not develop character and achievements as a result, but here it is," I surely would have grabbed 'em like a slicker in a rainstorm!

Therefore it's a rationale, dig?

So what's your own favorite one that you tell yourself to make lemonade out of wee-wee?

I'm lucky to not be much of a dancer, or I'd have come to NYC trying to be in Broadway shows in the 70s and would have not have probably survived the perils of a young gay fellow in NYC in the 80s. Still would love to be in shows, but this one is true!

I actually love my leather jacket--and it's not a rationale. But I have a million outfits and I'll keep switching them around. None of them are expensive because I just don't shop that way.

My genius will finally be recognized after I'm gone--like Kafka or Van Gogh.

One of your better outfits. That patchwork leather jacket you keep wearing - are you afraid you'll fall off your bike and not wreck something expensive?

Are you really the Marilyn Lastman, (nee Bornstein) infamous amongst other things here in Toronto for being really nervous about going to Mombasa, Kenya?

In June 2001, shortly before leaving for Mombasa, Kenya to support Toronto's bid for the 2008 Summer Olympics, "Mel" Lastman, nicknamed "Mayor Mel" jokingly said to a reporter "What the hell do I want to go to a place like Mombasa?... I'm sort of scared about going out there, but the wife is really nervous. I just see myself in a pot of boiling water with all these natives dancing around me."

Guys think I'm sexy, they're just too intimidated to come up to me and say so.

"Being freelance is the best way to go because I don't have to answer to anyone."
