When I was young, I used to sing the song, “On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese, I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed.” This meatball had several adventures as it rolled off the table and onto the floor. You can imagine everyone’s shock when it rolled right out the door! Subsequently, that meatball made its way to Hollywood. I imagine it packed its little meatball suitcase and boarded the meatball bus with dreams of making it big. It probably worked some odd jobs at restaurants or car dealerships; maybe dabbled in real estate before landing its first role. Although the part was only as an extra meatball in a commercial for an Italian restaurant, this meatball had dreams. The meatball wanted to see its name in lights.
