try so hard not to get noticed
that they notice you
Care a lot about what other people think.
Care so very much what they think that you express who you are through both fashion and behaviour.
Let it influence most of what you do.
There’s probably some cause or some person WAY MORE DESERVING THAN YOU.
Never take a vacation. That’s decadent.
Take most of your vacation money and donate it to someone on the extremes of what ever part of the political spectrum you dwell.
With the rest of your cash
Purchase your very own crown of thorns.
Isn’t it jaunty?
It’s rather delightful in how it cuts into your scalp. Revel in tasting your own blood as it trickles into your face.
(don’t worry, it was an ethically sourced crown of thorns)
Join a religious order that considers hairshirts fashionable.
Find people to beat you for who you are.
It does not matter where.
They are out there and in surprising places too!
The most vicious typically have the best intentions.
They also have some of the most wonderful thumbscrews of shame.
Let the zealots who are better than you abuse you for not being enough like they are.
I hope you saved a dollar or two.
Good for you!
Purchase a couple of two by fours and a few eight inch spikes.
Make ‘t’ shaped structure out of two by fours.
Parade around town carrying this ‘T’. It’s a fun and painful way to let everyone see how much you care and how tough things are for you.
People will be super impressed with you and how hard you work.
They will be jealous of how much you suffer.
Go to a top of a hill with your ‘t’
Wait for Roman with a hammer.
No Romans where you are?
That’s a shame.
They don’t even care enough to nail you up.
Complain to the world that no one cares as much as you do.
If no one listens, get a megaphone.
If no one listens, take out an advert.
If no one responds, get a Phd in ‘being right yet disrespected.’
Let life pass you by as you struggle for the cause.
Next slather yourself in honey and delight in rolling in a pile of fire ants of moral superiority.
And with your last breath, ask your offspring to follow in your footsteps and you too will help make the world a better place for generations to come
