I DON’T THINK GAGE was trying to be a dick.

Actually, I take that back. I do believe he was trying to answer my question as succinctly as possible. He just did it in a way I found to be kind of dickish. He might have done it on purpose, but I can’t tell you for sure. Even if he had, being kind of a dick is very different from being a total dick, especially since he did answer my question. He just answered it with a word I’d never heard before.

If you’re like me, let me save you a Google search.

solipsism: noun; 1) the theory that only the self exists, or can be proved to exist.

2) extreme preoccupation with and indulgence of one’s feelings, desires, etc.; egoistic self-absorption.

Anyone else would have said egoism or narcissism. Neither word fully encapsulates solipsism, but it would have gotten me close enough to understand what Gage was talking about. Instead, all it did was piss me off.
