Do you have a reputation? What is it, and where did it come from? Is it accurate? What do you think about it?
My Fictitious Talk.
You have never shown me a Like. I have left countless Likes on your blogs, trying to praise you to high heavens with my comments. (I lament.) For all those likes, I have yet to receive a single like from you.
“Why are you such a Scrooge?” I ask.
“How dare you call me a Scrooge? You are a terribly rude person”
“Why are you so niggardly with your likes?”
“The stuff you write, have you taken a good look at it. It’s not worth a glance even.”
A light blinks on. I smite my forehead.
“Oh! I never thought you can lie.”
“Why should I lie to you?” Turning the nose disdainfully at me.
“I am definitely right in saying so. You can’t resist visiting my blog. You leave your ping backs every day at my site. Why? Why can’t you leave a like?”
“I take it you will never give me a like?” I persist.
“I am disappointed. Truly I am.” I heave a massive sigh, reduced to childish tears, and resort to a threat. “I am not going to give you a single like ever, from this day onward. This is a promise. I won’t visit your page.”
“You are just a drop in an ocean.”
“Correct, but an ocean is made of many drops.”
