You're (Not) So Vain
Anybody recognized this song (written and performed by Carly Simon in 1972)? the famous line: "You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you." The mystery about the person hid behind the lyrics is very famous and still fascinates many people up till now. Well, what if it is you that become the person, or simply become the inspiration for a song, book, or movie? Are you gonna be proud, excited, flattered, embarrassed, or even angry? Or is it simply a mixture of them all? One thing for sure, you'll never know it exactly because most of the times, especially if you are not that famous, the author never tells the (whole) truth behind the story, or tell the person directly. That is enough to keep some interests in the work, a layer of mystery, a puzzle to solve, and curiosity, and maybe, add some colors to your life too.
