Vanity

Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
Ecclesiastes 1.2

A few thoughts about (gasp) vanity.

There is something very odd about vanity. It is very funny (to me) how vanity wants to be admired by people whom it thinks are inferior!

One would think that vanity wouldn't have anything to do with a `lower class' (asssessed as `lower' by vanity). Hahaha. Maybe it is because vanity believes it really is better than everybody else and because of this thinks this superior position, albeit an invention of it's own, is admirable.

Hahaha, when vanity is right `out there' in everyone's face, such as at a meeting when someone would preface a question with, `(clearing throat) Ahem, as a Man No. 4, I think…' and other `snootyisms'...
