Movie Star text


One day you are walking on the street. You bump into Brad Pitt. He looks at you and says,
«Wow, you are amazing. Come with me to Los Angeles. I will make you a movie star.»

You go to LA and become a famous movie star. You are rich. Everybody loves you. But you
have a problem. You are lonely in LA. You miss your friends. So you decide to fly home and
visit your friends and family.

You get a first class ticket, because you are rich. However, when you get to the airport, your
flight is delayed. The ticket agent says, «Im sorry, your flight is delayed 7 and a half hours.»
You wait. After 7 and a half hours, an agent says, «Im sorry, but the flight has been cancelled».
You are angry. You yell at the agent, «I’ve been waiting 7 and a half hours. Im tired and I’m
pissed off. I want another flight.»

The agent recognizes you, because you are a famous movie star. She says, «I’m so sorry… we’ll
get you on another flight.» She looks on her computer and finds another flight in 4 hours.
She says, «I have booked you on the next flight in 4 hours. Here is your new boarding pass.»

You take the ticket and wait in a bar. You drink 62 beers and get very drunk. 4 hours later, you
go to the gate to catch your flight. But you’re drunk, so you walk very slowly.

Because you walk so slowly, you’re late and miss your flight! When you get to the gate, the
plane is already leaving.

You yell, «Dammit, I missed my flight». You’re drunk and angry. The agent is afraid. She calls
airport security.

26 security officers run to the gate. They grab you and take you away. However, one officer
recognizes you. He says, «Wow. You are a famous movie star».

The officers are all very happy to meet you. They say, «We will help you. We have a police
airplane and we can fly you home».

You are very happy. All of you have a big party inside the police airplane. 6 hours later, you
finally arrive home. You are very drunk, and very happy.
