A Fable about Inverse Function
Somewhere out there was this gadabout who invested much of his waking hours in practicing the dillydally and the lollygag.
Although loosely described as a charming chap by fascinated onlookers, none of his slothful peers considered his acquaintance irresistible.
They departed because, for them, his perfect indolence was too extreme a challenge.
The spin-off of their shunning was that our slacker continued his laziness unabated, achieving outrageous attention and perverse encouragement from various feat-focused observers.
Meanwhile, on the part of our gad-like lad, it tickled him no end how the watchers worked assiduously to imitate his laid-back fashion.
Moral: Not easiest of human skills is the 'chill' reaction.
