Why I’m Better than Bette Midler

True, the meek (egoless) shall inherit the earth. (Read Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth if you don’t believe me.) I’m trying to be less self-centered. I promise I am! I’m trying to tame that ego of mine. “Be humble. Be humble,” I tell myself. But today it just wasn’t working.

This morning I checked on the status of my best-selling book Tim on Broadway. (Note the lack of humility in that last sentence. Good, God, what is wrong with me?) And I saw myself ahead of The Divine Miss M, Bette Midler in books on Broadway & Musicals. Me! Rick Bettencourt, one of her fans.Amazon_Rank8-22-2014 9-02-17 AM

Now, granted we’re not talking the NY Times…yet. (Damn, that ego!) But, I had to give myself a pat on the back. When I met Bette Midler, back in 1993 (below), I bet she did know she be contending with me! Nor did the diva on the left.
