David is thinking about the meat faerie

You like me, you really like me!

I heard someone say of another person, "I'm just tired of having to pretend he's funny."

Besides being funny, mean and profound (a great combo) that simple sentence made me think about the effort people put forth to support other people's self-image no matter how deluded it is. When you decide that you have a certain quality, society is set up in such a way that you will have millions of people working their asses off to prove to you that you are exactly what you think you are.

Somehow, that's comforting.
