Please note the self-restraint, the self-discipline, the temperance, with which I did not snatch the 18,000th post but stopped at 17,999. This left it for another to claim the glory and once again proves my humilty and modesty and how much I shun the spotlight and, after doing the work, leave the fame to others. Yes, I am like the publican standing in the back of the Temple, beating his breast and saying "Lord, be merciful to me, a sinner" and not like the Pharisee loudly boasting of how he prays and gives to the poor and lives his life in the fullest compliance to the Law. Or like the humble roadie who insures that The Star's concert proceeds flawlessly.
No, I would not want to snatch the 18,000th post.
Dibs of 666,666!
