Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

If you go out to dinner with the worlds hottest celebrities, you might want to check ahead of time who is going to pick up the tab. That was the lesson Pete Davidson learned a few weeks ago following his experience dining with Hollywood’s elite. Davidson revealed on both The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and during a segment of Vanity Fair’s Take a Lie Detector Test with Davidson and Machine Gun Kelly.


The Saturday Night Live comedian explained how he ended up covering the bill for a very expensive dinner at Nobu Malibu. For those who are not rich enough to frequent Nobu Malibu, allow us to explain the type of restaurant it is. Iron Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s self-named restaurant is a modern, beachfront space featuring all sorts of tasty (and ridiculously expensive) Japanese delicacies.


Kid Cudi invited Pete Davidson and Timothée Chalamet to celebrate his birthday at Nobu. Pete wanted to buy his friend dinner so he got to the restaurant early to hand his credit card to the waiter. He figured it was going to be just the three of them, joking everybody there is “skinny” so how much could they possibly eat? That’s when Kid Cudi announced, “Hey, Kim and Kanye might come by.” Pete says to Cudi, “That would be awesome!” And then it hit him: he has to cover the bill for Kim and Kanye. “And then I was like…oh no.” He knew his wallet was in trouble then!

Pete continued the story saying, “So they come by, and we’re outside. And Kanye goes, ‘Let’s get the SPECIAL room in the back.’ So we’re sitting there, and I was texting my touring agent, like, ‘Yo, we gotta book more shows.” When Kanye ordered, poor Pete almost had a heart attack. Kanye told the waiter, “I want that stuff that’s not even on the menu. That CRAZY stuff.” According to the comedian, the group dined on “a bunch of rich people stuff” with Kayne ordering the most expensive dishes, apparently.


But it was too late. Pete had given his credit card already to the server earlier, so there was no going back. He was stuck footing the bill. “[The bill] actually wasn’t as bad as you would think, but it’s not like Applebee’s. It’s Nobu, which is like 77 Applebee’s.”


What a hilarious story! You’re a sport, Pete, and a true friend!
