I was watching a commercial for the Golden Globe awards which featured all the beautiful, talented, and charismatic actors and actresses and genius writers, directors and composers arriving at the festivities in all their finery. These people are what we used to call the In-Crowd back in the day.
Things might be different now, but, when I was in Junior High and High School, the drama club crowd was not exactly the cool group. There were a couple of exceptions, but mostly those guys seemed a little on the strange side. However, when these odd creatures mature and go out into the world, a lot of them become the people who are most admired and envied by a large portion of the population.
The same holds true for the band geeks and art class freaks that later become the Grammy winners and the toast of the wealthy artsy fartsy types. We should also note that the wealthy artsy fartsy types used to be the brains back in their school days and certainly suffered through some hard times at the hands of the popular kids.
I guess this is what Earl would call karma.
