Well, hello everybody,
Allow me to introduce myself, I am Wilson. The one and only. Many of you may recognize me as the volleyball from the motion picture, Cast Away, which I see was quite the hit. No, I am not dead, nor lost forever in the ocean blue. I am completely rejuvenated and enjoying life. Let me take a moment to fill you in on what has occurred since my days on that dreadful, deserted island.
Tom Hanks WAS my best friend. I counted on him for everything, we had so many wonderful, meaningful conversations, I thought we really knew each other. I couldn’t wait for the fabulous life awaiting us back on land, however, that would never come true. An extreme and terrifying storm left our raft thrashed and I was dislodged from my seat and swept into the ocean. After a pathetic excuse of a rescue by Mr. Hanks, I bobbed alone in the frightful high seas for what seemed like an eternity. Exhausted and in terrible condition, I didn’t think surviving another day floating along the endless horizon of water would be possible, that is until I struck into something with an interesting texture. It was land! I couldn’t believe my eyes. I learned I had washed ashore the beaches of the Outer Banks in North Carolina. A native, walking along the shore, noticed me in my desperate shape. Remarkably, I was nursed back to perfect health in an incredibly short amount of time. I have no shame in saying that I underwent facial reconstruction and went through a bleaching process to repair my sun and water beaten leather. I feel absolutely fantastic and have begun to explore this new and improved world.
I have since received my earnings from Cast Away and lets just say, I will be quite comfortable for the remainder of my life. Luckily, a volleyball does not require many necessities to survive, so I’ve chosen to adventure this glorious world. I now own a laptop, and recently acquired an iPhone 4, and might I say, what an astounding piece of technology! The internet is mind boggling, I remember the old “You’ve got mail” days quite clearly. I’ve discovered Facebook and Twittering, or whatever it’s called. I must comment that the current mainstream music is atrocious. Justin Boober? What a hack. And what’s this American Idol? Oh, and I have no comment about our current choice in US leadership….Anyways, as you can see, I have decided to begin my own blog, accounting my new experiences away from the island. I will close my first entry here, I hope you will find my stories of my new life, pleasurable and entertaining.
PS. Tom Hanks, you better watch yourself, my friend. Wilson is back…bitches!
Myself, enjoying a Red Bull and Facebook.
