I am Narcissus . . .

25 Jun

Although I doubt that few people other than I, the King of Texas, will read this posting I will submit it anyway. I will submit it because I am afflicted with a Narcissus complex—I love myself and although I have unrealistic views of my qualities and abilities and little regard for those of others, I require constant reinforcement that can only be gained by comments on my postings.

In addition to my inflated self-image, my narcissism is characterized by an unusual coolness and composure, which is shaken only when my narcissistic confidence is threatened, ergo, my confidence is threatened by the lack of comments on my About the King of Texas page, on my It’s all about ME, ME, ME! page and on my numerous postings, all beautifully composed and presented and all supremely worthy of comments, laudatory or otherwise.

In the interest of full disclosure, I cheerfully admit that much of the above rant was plagiarized from YAHOO! I realize that plagiarism is illegal, unfair, unjust, immoral and probably fattening but the penalty is lessened when the plagiarizer is truthful up front—and I am stuffed with truthfulness!

For any viewer that may not believe that I would actually plagiarize, I can prove that I did—it can be verified here:

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

    Mmm, yes, I realised your opinion of yourself (!!) from my earliest visit to your blog. However, you don’t love yourself a nearly as much as you think you do, or you’d be posting photos of yourself on every post.

    By the way, this, in case you hadn’t noticed, is a comment. That means you are entitled to feel better.

    “What do you mean ‘entitled’ the King of Texas, exlaimed!”

    absurdoldbird typo!!! typo alert!!!! ‘a nearly’ – that ‘a’ shouldn’t be there. And there should’ve been a question mark after ‘entitled’.


    Absurdoldbird runs away quickly in case His Royal Highness the King of Texas doesn’t like smileys.

    No, no, don’t run away! I love smileys, and I love it when you comment and point out any mistakes you may have made in the comment. I especially love it because it shows that you also love yourself, and I am convinced that I have just met a fellow narcissist (please note that in this instance the word “fellow” is a unisex term).

    You didn’t mention it so I will assume that after adding the ? you will add an ” and replace the final ! with a . and delete the “. And I trust that you will agree that the . outside the ” in the preceding sentence is justified—an exception to the rule, so to speak. Oh, I almost overlooked this one—you may want to consider deleting the , that follows “the King of Texas.”

    You are right about the lack of photos in my postings and I will search for one or more suitable images to use. I may have to get my daughter Cindy to work her magic in Photoshop, but I assure you that any photo I use will be in strict harmony with my narcissistic nature.

    Just one more thought: Even though I am the King of Texas, I am a subject to be entitled, but any entitlement I might receive would necessarily be from the King of Kings, and as Martha would say, that’s a good thing!

    Hey, all seriousness aside, I enjoy your comments—keep ‘em coming!

    Well ’tis true I like looking in the mirror, but maybe for a different reason which you will find some way down this post.

    And – thanks for your comment on my Pitzy page, by the way. I appreciate it.
