Having given the matter some thought, I’ve concluded that there are two ways to fame and fortune.
The first of these is talent. For the benefit of my Colombian readership ( hello German) :
I can’t play football like Faustinio Asprilla; I can’t drive as fast as Juan Pablo Montoya; and as for Carlos Valdarama’s hair…well mine deserted me some time ago. I do have something in common with Shakira – my hips don’t lie. Unfortunately, what they say is “this waistline is the result of too many nights in the pub”.
The second way is winning the lottery. OK, so the fame thing is a bit tenuous, but from the outside looking in, I’d say it was overrated. So, never mind the fame, quiero solo mucho dinero ( I just want loads of cash) !
