It Finally Happened

After a Mere 1.6K Views My Parasitic Worm Article Has Garnered a Single Clap

What a relief. I was beginning to think I was a really terrible writer or something. Glad to know I was way off base with that assessment. Clearly Raynae Rowland (aka the Joker) appreciates my skills. With an endorsement of one single clap from a person of such renown, outstanding scholarship, and standing in the literary community I can rest easy. Today is great day.

Thank you Raynae, if I may call you by your first name. Even though the Joker was a psychotic killer he always made me smile. In fact this entire situation reminds me of a joke about two inmates in a lunatic asylum who try to escape. One inmate jumps across a narrow gap between the asylum and the adjoining building, but the other is afraid he’ll fall. The first inmate offers to shine his flashlight across the gap so the other can walk across it, but the second inmate replies, “What do you think I am, crazy? You’d just turn it off when I’m halfway across!” That always makes me chuckle. Why aren’t you laughing?
