Mediocrity in a Meritocracy

Alright. I admit it. I am not a high achiever. There. I said it. Now what? Hmmm. Nope I don't feel at all the better for this confession. I've kept this secret for a long time. But what does this revelation mean? I don't know. Maybe it's to set the bar low for anyone that I happen to come into contact with in the future. Perhaps expectations would be much more realistic. Subsequent meetings might go something like this:

-Hi. I'm Sean Mitchell. Nice to meet you.
-I'm *new person* Where are you from?

-Have you seen my website?
-No, I can't say that I have.

-Oh. That's a shame.
-Really? What's it about?

-Yeah...Hey listen. Before we go any further with this you've gotta go to seanmitchell.com.

- I can't be responsible for what might happen if you don't.
- What are you talking about?

- Until verification of viewing seanmitchell.com via IP address log, or secured site registration on seanmitchell.com, I, Sean Mitchell, and any relatives, affiliates, associates or acquaintances of Sean Mitchell will not be held liable for any and all concurrent actions or inaction as a result of this conversation or as a result of referencing this converation by any and all entities, be they live, human entities, or virtual products of technology.

- What the!

- Also not to be held liable are persons with the same or similar names, similar name origins, etymological likenesses, or similar genetic constitution. Likewise names appearing in reverse order (common name, surname) are also-
- Uh, good bye.

Well, anyway, this is just to inform you that I consider myself an underachiever. So don't be surprised if I under-achieve. But if I achieve, W00T!
