Pretending to be concerned

I remember people telling me I needed a gimmick to get famous.

I remember seeing a James Bond triple bill at Varsity Theater, and having go to the lobby to splash cold water on my face from the drinking fountain to stay awake. More than once.

I remember a toy rifle called Johnny Eagle, and the song from the commercial for it.

I remember the bank teller at the credit union telling me I looked tired, and asking if I was feeling OK, pretending to be concerned, but really she just wanted to insult me because I asked her not to put a hold on a check and she was annoyed.
