Life Imitating Art

"When a true genius appears in the world,
you may know him by this sign, that the dunces
are all in a confederacy against him."

Dear Reader,

It has become apparent to me that my life is now mirroring that of Ignatius J. Reilly from the book "A Confederacy of Dunces". I am eerily involved in the same circumstances as he was. I have been thrust out upon the working world. I am constantly badgered by insolent parents. I am continual dealing with frivolous minxes. Everywhere I go I see a lack of theology and geometry. Lastly, I experience constant hostility towards my superior worldview. The most frightening thing of all is that I can feel myself becoming Ignatius. Maybe it won't be so bad if I do. It could be amusing.
That is all for now. I must be off, I fear my valve is closing.

Yours Truly,
Your Agitated Working Boy
