Taking your first piece of advice, is over-emphasising WORDS using capitals important to you?

If another person has read this advice, do we both refuse to speak in deference to the other? Does that create an interesting conversation, like cars trapped at an intersection with four stop signs?

Are you humouring me yet? I am humouring myself.

So how has your day been? I have never met you before. We are currently sharing this piece of writing, are we enjoying it?

I believe that you believe that you are the most important person in the world. Have I won your heart?

Maybe you can tell me from this piece how it fulfilled your DESIRES, what PLANS you have for it, what EXPERIENCES you are writing from, what STRUGGLES inform your advice, why you intend to impart your OPINIONS and what RELATIONSHIP we might share at the end of this process?

I hope we have formed a connection.

Advice #4: can you speak only the truth for an hour. Oh no, not the truth of the face masks blinking in and out of your space, but the real truth (as you see it)?

Went to a party the other night and had this up on my phone for reference. I had to keep glancing at it, so it didn't work all that well. Pretty sound advice otherwise.

Sounds like a narcissist's plan to get the whole world to focus on him.

Good advice, though, if you're desperately needing people to like you.

Although, a person keeps asking me questions about my personal life, when I don't even know them, I'm liable to think they're poking their nose into business that doesn't concern them, and it's unlikely the conversation will last long.

But then, I'm just a crusty old fucker who has too many people coming around acting like they give a shit about me, anyway, so who am I to say whether this shit works?

Carry on.

There is a cult surrounding blue oysters.

Wait.
Am I watching you turn into a curmudgeon?

It means, while I talked nice to you, I really thought you were full of shit.

Not you particularly, Chinspinner. People in general. Full of shit people, in particular.

Other people, not so much.
