Back in the 1970s, the three caste classiﬁcations we used to identify everyone with were the preppies, the freaks, and the nerds. I think I was somewhere in the middle of preppie and nerd. I kind of had my own category. I played the trom bone in the school band, was on the tennis team (hated every minute of that), and had a decent number of friends. Some of my buddies were the popular preppie sort; others were not. I entered school talent shows, still did oral reports with the help of a dummy or two, and got up in front of everyone to perform as often as possible.

This was the ﬁrst time I had really performed on camera consistently, and I was prac ticing a skill and getting an education about television in a way that could never be understood from sitting in a classroom or studying books. 9 seconds of talking in my sleep. I could walk and talk and read and manipulate Archie and do ventriloquism and watch the director and listen for cues in my earpiece, all at the same time without missing a beat.

That meant that I could drive the vehicle for four thousand miles and give it back, only to pick out another one for another four thousand miles. During the four years I worked for Carl, I went through eight 280ZXs and one Pontiac Trans Am. When shooting the commercials in Tyler, I was treated to the luxuries of showbiz a bit too early.
