They’re a thing.
It’s the equivalent
of shooting yourself in the foot,
bleeding all over the floor,
but still walking around,
and not processing the pain for a long while,
until you stub your toe,
look down at your ridiculous foot
with a giant, gaping hole,
and see blood everywhere.
Then you wonder,
“How did I not know?”
You can go to the hospital for your foot,
but doctors won’t heal your dignity.
Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.
