Day 126 A Day with the Stars, Hollywood Wax Museum, SC

Elves at the dinner

Having an  “unusual sense of humor”  is a characteristic of a self-actualized person according to the psychologist,  Maslow, and that is just what you need to enjoy a silly wax museum. It’s pure “cheesy” fun. My son and my friends did this in South Carolina as we searched the Hollywood Wax Museum for the  most real looking figure and as we took a lot of ridiculous  pictures.

In a wax  museum  it seems like everyone enjoys  bursts of excitement when they see   one of their favorite stars.  We pretend that the person is really there. You jump into the picture with the wax figure and have a moment of fame. You also become an expert on the ones that “look really real” as if  any of us really know what these people actually  look like –we have never met any of them.   It’s fun to play,  and a wax museum gives us all a reason to do just that! 

You will leave full of smiles laughing at your silliness.
