narcissist

Monday, July 18, 2005


The legend goes there once was a young man named Narcissus whose beauty caused everyone he met to fall in love with him. A nymph, Echo, fell in love with him but he ignored her, breaking her heart. Nemesis, the god of revenge and retribution, put a spell on Narcissus to make him fall in love with his own image in a pool of water, there he stayed mesmerized by his own reflection till he died, after which the gods turned him into a flower.

Yes, In its place was a lovely yellow-centered white flower, the narcissus.

I like the story.

If I could claim that the god of revenge was my good personal friend - a lot fewer people would mess with me.

I could think up some really good ways to get even!
