I have a troll comment on my exercise post from this morning [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]. I’m not going to bother to unmoderate it (trolls are almost always anonymous for some mysterious reason), but I’ll reprint it here because I think it’s hilarious and deserves mockery.
So, your basic egoism. Easy.
See, I figure my friendly neighborhood troll is saying that it’s either egoism to exercise and take care of your body, or it’s egoism to talk about exercising and taking care of your body.
Either position is kind of baffling. I mean, this is my body and it’s tried to kill me twice now. :: waves hello to cancer :: I damn well ought to take care of it. Exercising is hardly being a bad example to myself or others, either.
On the other hand, this is my blog, and I can damn well talk about whatever I want to. You lot are just lucky that I’m not the kind of obsessive who measures the net linear dimensions of his bowel movements or something. Because you know what? You don’t have to read it!
Or maybe it’s subtle comment spam? At least when I snark at someone, I sign my name. :: waves hello to the Republican party ::
In any case, I must say, my fragile spirit is wounded by this offhand and safely anonymous comment. You’ll find me sniffling in the corner over there any minute now, really. I swear.
