i - Count

Ok this post is for all those who put the rest aside and talk about just the ‘I’. I am the greatest, I can do this, I can do that. For all those who refuse to see others, just talks about himself as if he is the current big thing. For all those who believe that when he says the sun rises from the west, then we must take it for granted that it is the universal truth.

Come on, speak out. How many times have you used that I today and all those so called great things, that you supposed you did, did you do.?

I will give you some examples. Consider them as of the highest magnitude, would rate them 10 on 10, most hypothetical ones.

  • I can climb Mt.Everest with my hands, myself all upside down!
  • I can swim Atlantics with both my feet and hands tied!
  • I write some lines in braces and when I compile and run the program it never fails, absolutely no error!
  • I practice boxing with punching bags filled with pebbles!
  • I taught lions how to roar.
  • Street flooded with thousands of people make way for me on hearing the sound of the footsteps that I take a mile away!
If you can think of something that you have done in one of the 1000th part of what has been mentioned above, speak it out. It sure would be fun.

What are you waiting for? Begin the I-Count.

I may be a bit self centered, but I have never made any claims like those unless I was joking. I also tend to avoid people who do act like that.

That's why "I" is always capital and alone ;)

Darn it. I was going to defend myself, but it took I to do it.

Little Lamb said...

wow! You've done a lot. More than I'll ever accomplish. :-)

atomicvelvetsigh said...

ohh actually ever wondered why i never used i in caps? thats one of those reasons..

i really like your thoughts and reflections..

have a great weekend..

Sandy said...

@whim - i like their company. atleast it keeps you entertained.

@jay - wow dude, what an observation?

@the walking man - no mark that wasnt enough. The world is filled up with people like that and a mere paragraph doesnt do justice.

@noisysmile - ha ha ha. thats ok.

@little lamb - but not like the lamby who went hunting for the cars.

@atomicvelvetsigh - thanks mate.

the walking man said...

The temptation you know Sandy is to fill the box up with eyes.

While not a pretty commodity at all times, self worship is all of the acknowledgment some will ever get, are you saying that they are to be denied?

Personally *shrug* I know who, what and where I've been and none of it matters much in the overall scheme of things, neither does another's self centered thought.

VioletSky said...

My imagination doesn't extend that far. Always thinking need to justify claims. Not for me.
But you have a point, those people are entertaining!

Sandy said...

@the walking man: you r right there sir, but i personally feel that the capability that i have in me shouldnt me made fuss about by shouting. i know it that i can thats it(a great acknowledgment to myself), and if people who come in contact with me recognize it without myself talking bout my greatness then that would be icing on the cake.

@violetsky - yes they sure are

Melissa said...

i uhhh... finished the entire rows of cookies i baked for my family?

now does that count?

it's the truth nway, if you're wondering *grins*

Sandy said...

ha ha melissa i would only believe it if you give me some to eat.

cathy said...

How can one appreciate the importance of a single human soul if they do not first understand the significance of self?

on the other hand there is a difference between
a sense of self worth
and being self important!

Sandy said...

cathy i agree with u

Mary said...

I personally try to avoid people who are self-centered. It doesn't make for good friendship, if a person is always saying I this I that. No-one wants to hear that all the time, I mean we all do it occasionally but some people go overboard...have a great day..Mary

Mary said...

Hi Sandy: Thanks for the comment, it means a lot..Mary

Sandy said...

@mary - hmm. yeah braggers get to your nerves

DeLi said...

good one! i think "I" as a teacher has taught lost of lions (aka students) how to roar :)

Sandy said...

deli i think thats really nice

Parth Barot said...

as deli said, its true.

And also sometimes it seems that 'I' is something selfish or own worship,but may be it can be a self confidence? isn't it?

i agree with you that sometimes we think too selfish and only think of ourselves and so will try to keep that in mind not to ignore others. :)

/t. said...

you're awesome!

and yes, i've done all of those things, too!

:)

Sandy said...

@pb - true

@/t - wow.
