Would that be a metafail?
Screwtape proposes a toast
Vader your CS Lewis quote is quite apt.
Heh. Glad someone spotted that.
My husband proposes replacing the word “success” with the phrase “deferred failure.”
Excellent. That would be in line with “temporarily abled”, used by some activists for the disabled.
I loathe activists.
Patricia K., your husband has precisely the right outlook on life. For now.
high school dropout = indefinitely deferred success
dumber than a box of rocks = proactively deferring success
public high school = synergistic proactive success deferral
rude = exploring courtesy’s liminal space
