I was having grave difficulty with my trigonometry lesson.  And I found myself drifting off.  I found myself wondering, “Won’t someone admire my struggle?  Admire it as though it were comparable to, say, the wondrous historical struggle of the Proletariat?  Or some other glorious struggle?  Won’t anyone?  Anyone at all?”
