Dichotomy

Available for short entertainment stints: Twenty something, fast and smart talking, arrogant, decent listener-actor of a cocky bastard. An okay bargain.

Listed as missing: Twenty something, scared, vulnerable, insecure and gullible sucker for posterity. A bad investment.

Age-old wisdom says you should not move or attempt to ground your feet on the beach when the waves retreat, gradually washing away the sand from right underneath them. Let them slip away like the fine sand in an hourglass, one or many at a time, till there remains nothing. Bottom out, invert the fancy time machine and the drama begins all over again.
