"I’m an absolutely ordinary guy. Less than ordinary. I’m going bald, i’m getting a pot belly, I turned 40 last month. My feet are flat. The doctor told me recently I have diabetic tendencies. It’s been three months or more since I last slept with a woman — and I had to pay for it … I don’t have a single person that likes me, either at work or in my private life. I don’t know how to talk to people, and i’m bad with strangers, so I never make friends. I have no athletic ability, i’m tone-deaf, short, phimotic, near-sighted — and astigmatic. I live a horrible life. All I do is eat, sleep, and shit. I don’t even know why i’m living."
