And the award for best feet goes to…
The crowd was just dying to hear the name of the chosen one — the winner of the best feet award. They could no longer stand the suspense while the nominees hands were already itching to grab the feet-shaped plaque. And after a few drum rolls and shortness of breaths, the award was given to none other than, the not so deserving, miss-award-collector! Clap Clap! Hoorah for her self-esteem! She would probably make posters, leaflets, flyers, brochures, magazines, etc. etc. to announce to the whole universe that she received an award. She might also teach her babies how to get these ego boosters so that they could follow her footsteps. Now the dilemma — where did she place the one thousandth award she just received?
Ego boosters. Ah. Just like the ones used for chicks, ego boosters are there to increase the growth of egos. Of course, egos are hatched from the eggs of heredity and environment. Yes, egos are inborn, but it is up to the owner to feed it with boosters (i.e. trophies, plaques, certificates, false compliments, etc. etc.), which are not expensive when bought at the nearest local store or from a closest friend.
But even these kinds of ego enhancers can be toxic when taken at large amounts, as Paracelsus said, “Toxicity is a matter of dosage”.
So, be careful when taking ego boosters. It may lead to a long term illness which can eventually cause death. 🙂
