WANTED: NEMESIS

An equal person of quality to bend their will to thwarting mine and upsetting the status quo of my friends and loved ones. A person of such infinite ability that I must frequently “don my cape and seal” and venture forth to vanquish them. Life-long commitment to this end is a must, subtly is required at first; grander schemes of evil and mayhem will be entertained (and thwarted) at a later date.

I have reached a rather unfulfilled last few weeks of my life. I am still very, very happy, and at the same time largely bored with it. I don’t want to be unhappy, far from it. But I feel my abilities and energy deserve, nay demand, something more. A higher calling if you will. I’ve spent a fair amount of time dwelling on this and realized that a nemesis would fit the bill quite nicely. Someone so like myself to be of comparable talent and passion, but in no way the same person. Two sides of the same coin if you will. But this person I’ve come to understand would have plots and schemes, that if left unchecked by me, would render my life and those of my loved ones completely miserable. Perhaps my nemesis is already at work and I don’t even know it! Yet. I imagine meeting a nemesis for the first time is much like falling in love at first sight; only significantly more likely to happen.

I have yet to find my calling, and achieve my true potential: I feel rather like a super-hero with no super-villain to fight.
