Last week I was at a conference for work. I ran into someone I went to high school with. He must’ve had a pretty hard life since then because he’s aged really badly. He looked so old and tired and grey. I only knew it was him because we were wearing name tags. I told him he was in my class at high school. He said “Really? What did you teach?”
Oh Yak I was mortified. I thought I’d been ageing really well. I’ve always looked after myself, eaten well, exercised, had regular colonic irrigations and been rebirthed twice a year. But now my confidence has taken a nose dive. If he thinks I look older than him then maybe I haven’t been trying hard enough all these years. How can I get my confidence back?
Not as Hot as I Thought I Was
Dear Not Hot,
Okay, let’s be honest here… you really only said hello to this guy coz you expected him to tell you how fabulous you look.
You could clearly see that he looked like shit. By saying hello to him you were really just flaunting your own (perceived) hotness in front of him and expecting him to compliment you in the process. All cunningly disguised as friendliness.
Feel something warm and wet dripping down the side of your face? You should. The Karma Llama has just spat on you!
Hope this helps.
With kind regards,
