I’m in college dealing with a pain in the a** philosophy prof. Anyway, I suck up to him (and surreptitiously make fun of him) by saying how much he has influenced me in Cartesian thought; especially the “cotigo”. I tell him how much he has enlightened me with modern philosophy and I act so thankful for helping me realize how “outdated” Aquinas and Aristotle are. It’s really fun, and he’s completely clueless. I know “Cotigo ergo sum” is a crock of malarkey, but he thinks he’s gained a disciple. He knew of my Thomistic thinking at first, but now I’m acting like he’s converting me. He’s so proud.
Oh, also, he’s pretentious and arrogant. So he deserves it. I’m also getting an A.
Aren’t I cool?
Call me out if I’m being mean. That’s what Socrates would do…
