Like Moths To My Fame

I am well known but the terms of my treatment mean I cannot reveal precisely in what way I am famous. Actually, scratch that. The multiplicity of talents that I have, I am a regular polymath, means I cannot identify precisely the one reason I am famous. What this does mean is that whenever I attend a drinks party for example, I find it exhausting. I attended one last night at the house of a close personal friend. He has a splendid house and it is near, but not equal to the value of my own. Anyway, whenever I arrive I am besieged by those seeking my attention. I find the first person I talk to wants to hear all about my achievements but I am conscious that I can see someone else glancing in my direction and no doubt wanting to listen to me. This makes for a dilemma. The person I am regaling is clearly entranced by my monologue but I see others want the benefit of my presence and I have to provide it to them. Sometimes, they make it easier and a small crowd will assemble to ooh and aah at my diatribe, but usually I have to move from person to person round the room. I often think I ought to carry a written bulletin of what I have been doing and distribute it. At least that way I can get around to everybody. I would hate to think that I would ever leave someone out. My girlfriend usually complains that I am talking to all the other women and not her, but she does not understand. She does not get the same attention that I do. That is hardly my fault is it? She even complained when she found me in the bedroom with a younger lady. We were only talking but along she comes checking up on me. She can be controlling at times and I have to put her in her place. I did when we got home, there’s no need for a dressing down in public. Still all was not lost by her interruption. I have the young lady’s telephone number and I have managed to find her on Facebook so you will have to excuse me as I have a fluttering moth that needs to be shown the light.

    Doesn’t your ” God ” status make you famous ? Can you give us a hint what else makes you famous….besides being a published author of many books?
    Women do love being put in their place, If so, I choose my bed please.

      1. No, it isn’t time yet for my place to be. So, football then, I am fully unaware in that area and if I tell you a team I like it may insult you. I know how serious such sport is. So I tread lightly in such arenas 😏

      2. Ah but it is near the beautiful North York moors with Helmsley, Roseberry Topping and Guisborough Hall. I am sure the residents of Middlesbrough will be please to see you visit. Now Stockton, that is a hell hole.

      3. You travel frequently for football. Is that purely recreational? Or are you involved with security or something now related to sports? I remember you also saying one of your many talents is being a very accurate marksman?

    1. My ex N called me silly, I found it sweet and endearing. Based on the times he used it. He never said it in a derogatory manner, or at least I never took it that way. He usually said when he was being silly too, it was playful with him. Anyways too much explanation.
