Ships that Pass in the Night


I fear I may have reached my own personal level of incompetence
Said Sandoval to his confessor
And I must confess to being quite happy about that.

What’s to fear?
Said The Confessor
What is fear But the broken-down components of insecurity: food, shelter, entertainment...
What you fear, he continued, is the loss of the need to learn; what you fear is death, or boredom.

Same thing
Said Sandoval
But who said anything about fear?

You did
Said The Confessor

I said I’ve reached my own level of incompetence
Said Sandoval

I fear you may be correct
Said The Confessor
