You are the kind of person who mistrusts the second person singular. Meta-narrative only makes things worse. But you read on. You think that, maybe, it will all be worth it. Perhaps something will be revealed to you; an insight, epiphany or homespun wit. Six sentences in, you discover that you're wrong.
