It is said that everyone has one foot slightly larger than the other, but I've been sitting and staring at mine for nearly three hours now and cannot discern the slightest bit of difference. Even both my big toes are sprouted with the same number of fine hairs. I am absolutely symmetrical. Half a man x 2.

Dad once said that I reminded him of a worm. That even if he cut me in two both halves would probably crawl away and survive. He said that diseases were like that too. That they constantly halved and multiplied. He said that homosexuality was a virus, and that explained why queers didn't have to rely on vagina's to breed.

Dad spoke a load of crap. But as a young boy with unnatural reactions toward other young boys, it was crap that terrified me. Even now, at almost thirty two years of age, in moments of huge personal crisis, his insane words continue to taunt me. “Look at your feet!” he used to scream, “Tristram Spencer, you're only half a man!”

  1. In Plato's Symposium, it is said that humans originally consisted of four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces, but Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spend their lives searching for the other half to complete them.

    Luckily Zeus is a legend and there is only one true God.

    Otherwise you'd be a quarter of a man...
