I’m in the latest issue of a Canadian kids’ magazine. Here’s the front cover…
And here I am on page 10, truly honored to be a part of “Weird Zone.”
Yes, it’s the famous bathtub pic, originally taken for “People Magazine” in the summer of 1999. This specific shot was taken during a break with MY camera, which means I can’t get sued for letting other publications use it.
If there’s anything I’d change about this OWL piece (other than the one and a half factual errors–can you spot them?), I would’ve used more interesting “secrets.” The three that were chosen by the editors are as basic as it gets. Don’t you think kids would rather read that I ask for balls in different languages and own all 30 major league hats and have a contraption in my glove that allows me to lower it on a string and pick up balls that are out of reach?
I don’t mean to complain. I loved magazines like this when I was a kid…and I’m really just a big kid now…which means I still love them. I wasn’t joking when I said I’m honored to be in it, “Weird Zone” and all.
