  1. Weirdly, moreso people whom I grew up with, particularly the soi-dissant “cool kids” who shunned me, knowingly or not, than people I’m currently friends with (ie. people I met in University or thereafter). Hell, even impressing strangers and very loose acquaintances scratches the itch nicely. But for people I’m friends with, a degree of modesty feels most appropriate. Not that I actually want to “flex” on the “cool kids” of yesteryear, I just like knowing that I could. My shoulder, it’s chipped! And/or this is just what social domination looks like in praxis.
  2. After going through their wills and estates over the holidays, I’m quite certain of the fact that they are indeed proud of me already, but tides can turn and I’ll be damned if my little brother gets the better of me again (indeed, the little punk was himself one of the soi-dissant cool kids of yesteryear!).
  3. Indeed, it has already begun.
  4. Rich, yes, though not famous per se. Interestingly, this makes me the opposite of your typical “influencer” who works their buns off to get “famous” then works their buns off again to try monetise the bloody thing. No thanks!
