SO I WENT TO MY MEDIUM.COM PAGE FROM MY GOOGLE SEARCH PAGE AND I WAS CRESTFALLEN TO SEE THAT I HAD ONLY 9 FOLLOWERS. AND I SAID, THAT WOULD LOOK MUCH BETTER TO ME IF I HAD 10 FOLLOWERS SO I HIT THE FOLLOW KEY AND I THOUGHT , THERE NOW I HAVE 10 FOLLOWERS AND IT IS OKAY TO CHEAT A LITTLE AND FOLLOW YOURSELF, ISN’T IT ? I MEAN IF I CAN’T BELIEVE IN ME THEN WHO CAN ? BUT NOW I COME BACK AND I STILL HAVE ONLY 9 FOLLOWERS. NINE. MAN, THAT HURTS. I WONDER IF MY SMART-ALECK COMMENT TO THAT NON-GREEK DIOGENES GUY GOT HIM INTO COUNTER-MEDIUM.COM-FOLLLOWER-ESPIONAGE MODE AND HE DEEP-SIXED MY ATTEMPT AT HITTING THE GOLDEN 10 FOLLOWERS. OR HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW I EXIST AND IT IS THE GODS THEMSELVES THAT ARE KEEPING ME FROM THE POWER AND THE GLORY THAT IS THE 10 FOLLOWER PLATEAU. AMEN AND AMEN.
