I don't have "game." Never have. Although a lack of sophistication was a byproduct of my considerable naiveté when I was younger, I realized as I lived and learned that participating in a kind of social discourse for which the only rule is that you can never get caught in a lie was never in my best interest.
In the name of full disclosure, and at the risk of seeming a bit self-righteous, I'm still not entirely certain about what I have been afforded by even attempting to demonstrate such piety. Yet, as it turns out, I happened to avoid emulating the numerous lowlifes for whom my respect has been permanently replaced by contempt. And I suppose that alone is enough.
