And, Also, These Slim Fit Pants Sure Are Snug

I’m not one to humble-brag; I’m embarrassed to even relay this exchange.
But, just the other day, Whitney James De Lacroix, former World Humble-Brag Champion and current chair of the International Humble-Brag Judging Tribunal, approached me.
He told me, “You’ve got an amazing, raw, innate talent, Sir. You could, perhaps, someday, be the world’s best humble-braggart.”
I looked at my feet and shrugged. “I don’t know. I’m green. I only made it fifteen rounds into the finals before being narrowly defeated by the man who would go on to take the entire championship. I clearly lack focus and ambition. I should’ve trained I really didn’t train.”
Mr. De Lacroix snorted. “You poor, sad, ridiculous genius.”
