Some people just have a flair for putting on a show.
And a whole lot of other people just love a good show.
As long as the show is on the stage or the silver screen, the two go together nicely.
But when the show is in the kitchen, in the boardroom, during the committee meeting, at a restaurant, in a conference, in the classroom, at church or anywhere else where no one has paid to see a performance, we have a problem.
The problem is that, like I said earlier, some people have a flair for putting on a show…even when they’re off script.
And a whole lot of other people still love a good show, even when said performer has taken the show on the road to all the wrong places.
What’s the problem with that, you might ask? The problem is that “a whole lot of people” still respond to the drama queen’s performance as though she had just executed a finely crafted piece of art. They bow down with respect. They sing her praises. They “pay” whatever she’s demanded: homage, respect, money, obedience, compliance, you name it. She gets that for which she put on such a persuasive show.
Or he does. I’ve known a lot of drama queens. But I’ve known a few drama kings too. I’ve noticed that drama queens tend to be, well, more dramatic. Outwardly so. While drama kings tend to be a little more…regal, if you will. Their air of dignity, distinction, and wisdom is what plays to their gullible audience. But it’s a show all the same.
Wonder where I’m going with this biblically? I am supposed to be walking through the Bible after all. Well, take a front row seat and enjoy the show.
