You can't help but notice him/her. I mean, he/she wouldn't even permit it if you tried.
Attention hounds. They're everywhere on the third rock from the sun.
They show up at work, at school, at church, at the supermarket. They troll the company picnic, the family Christmas party -- heck, even the Ladies Room at the swim meet where, apparently, if you're taking too long at the sink and the mirror is only so big, you get physically moved out of the way.
Listen, lady, everyone's hair looks bad, each of us is sweating buckets and all of our collective makeup is melting off -- it's 482 degrees in the natatorium for all of us not just you, for heaven's sake. No need to hip bump me. Just ask me to step aside when I'm done rinsing my hands and I'm glad to, okay? Sheesh! #SheLiterallyShovedMe #WishIWasJoking
You know that guy/gal. The "look at me! look at me!" person dropping themselves into the middle of parties, conversations and general life moments ... even if they have no particular business being there. #NotEverythingIsAboutYou
These folks are usually double-jointed (can easily contort themselves for effective self back-patting), double-spoken (typically quick to chat about anyone and everyone who's walked out of earshot) and double trouble, mostly because their complete inability to focus on anyone other than self usually ends up hurting some of the other humans in one way or another, Capisce? #PleaseStayOnTheOtherSideofTheParty
Look, I'm all for being confident and assertive. I hear those are great qualities to have. Wink.
But, please keep in mind that, fabulous as you are, the billions of other homo sapiens existing on this big round ball are right here, too, you dig?
And just FYI: that bright star we keep circling around year after year? Yeah, it's not you, a'ight?

See Jn 6:63c, 68c Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life; You have the words of everlasting life. Gospel Mt 5:17-19 Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.”
