Oscar, Oscar, Oscar. So many Oscars but none of them notable enough to write about.
Oscar the Grouch, of course. I watched Sesame Street when I was little and I lived through the 90s when it was fashionable for teenagers to wear t-shirts with Sesame Street and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony characters on them. Pretty sure teenagers, and twenty-somethings, still do that, but maybe with more modern icons. Naturally, Oscar was my choice.
Oscar from The Office. That show was so funny, at least until Pam and Jim got married and had a baby and became boring fuddy-duddys trying to hang on to their carefree days but dealing with serious shit like marital problems. No good.
Oscars, as in The Oscars. I pretended to care about celebrity awards shows when I was in high school because all my friends did. Just like I pretended to care about football and the Superbowl. I’m too old to pretend anymore.
I taught in Spain, Mexico, and Honduras. I’m certain I had a student named Oscar somewhere along the line, but if so, he doesn’t stand out in memory.
Oscar Wilde? Never been much of a fan.
Oscar Mayer weiners? Balogna!
This is going downhill pretty quickly. I’ll end here. Leave a comment and tell me about the Oscars in your life.
