“Don’t quit your day job O.P.”
You stare at the comment. The comment stares back at you. You are full of dread. How did they know?
You were sure that this post - this one post - was your ticket to eternal fame. It wasn’t meant to be insightful or make anyone contemplate a deeper meaning, it was just supposed to be good. Apparently, you had failed.
You had quit your day job - in fact, you had quit everything.Your job, your relationships, your life, everything. You weren’t even alive anymore - that’s how sure you were that your post was amazing. You were blogging from the dead as a sentient ghost, because who cares? At least you had a good post that didn’t actually mean anything.
Except it wasn’t good and now all you are is a ghost with a blog. Darn.
