Often, in practice, their unending requests for practical help constitute an unquenchable demand for narcissistic supply.
Anyone see where I left my hairbrush?
I would never do anything to help anyone else Tom. That would be wasting precious time on others that I could spend on myself because I too am precious. Anyway I always buy my hairbrushes in bulk from Costco in case of emergencies. I have at least one in every room beside the mirrors. They more I look the them the more beautiful they appear to be. Ok, I better go and check they are still working properly. Nothing else really matter does it? Oh If I was an ice cream I would lick myself to death!
Sorry Tom, I don't do humor in case I might get laughter lines. Can't you tell from my avatar?
I thought I saw a hairbrush in the hand of that orange mannequin over there...
I used to sing that song "you're so vain, you probably think this song is about you, don't you..."
Because my youngest brother used to preen a lot, and, the part that cracked me up was that every time I'd sing it within his ear shot (As in, he's in the bathroom, and I'm on the other side of the house...), I'd hear him yelling,
"I AM NOT!!!"
It is always in the last place you look, guaranteed.
