Post Foist Ben
Eastern Box Turtle - I Know Sometimes a Man is Wrong - Click here for another funny movie. Hi, my name is Ben, and I am a Foistaholic. Hi Ben. You're in the right place. My biggest addiction in life suddenly appeared to me as My uncontrollable desire to foist my ideas on others.
I was a foister. As opposed to meeting folks where they're at, I'd presume they wanted my direction. I foisted in all sort of ways that in hindsight are so pretty.
Post-Foist Ben is wondering if he is living Boy-Meets-Girl or Man-In-Hole story. Kurt Vonnegut proposed that there are three primary profitable story structures, plus one that is posthumously profitable, Hamlet. I ran Hamlet for a while and I found it hard to pay my rent habit.
Vonnegut's 3-Profitable Story Structures below are extracted from A Man Without a Country.
