Marvelous Millions had a million abilities. I had just one thousand. He was featured on social media, television, and Wheaties boxes. My press was limited to radio talk shows, penny papers left at grocery stores, and air freshener wrappers.
In balance, Aggregation Hive hunted him whereas I was pursued merely by Millipede Man and his sidekick, Centipede Boy. Marvelous Millions suffered countless, unhealable lacerations. My computable ones were tended to by thirteen of the Fourscore Nurses.
He suffered for nearly incalculable eons. I married Nurse Martha, who gestated our thousand thousands. His death was lonely anguish. Mine will be quantifiable exhaustion.
