Your wife asked me to talk to you. I see that you were admitted after having a panic attack. Panic attacks are caused by stress. Are you overworked?

Neil
No, it’s a name-only job. On weekdays I’m at the horse farm. I’m in the city on weekends.

Jupiter
If you don’t talk about this now, you’ll have another attack and we’ll be back here. What happened right before you collapsed?

Neil
I’ve just finished a fencing lesson with John Tam, the designer. He asks me to follow him on Instagram. I do. I notice he has 4,000,000 followers. I scroll through and count twenty posts. I suddenly felt a tightness in my chest and here we are. Completely unrelated, I’m sure.

Jupiter
Let me do a quick check… His account has been active for … a month. And… I see that you have nine hundred thousand followers. That’s a good number.

Neil
I’m the COO of a global NGO. I have two thousand paid employees. I should be instantly recognised. Nine hundred thousand followers is unacceptable.

Jupiter
From what I see here, your posts are about your vegan diet, and you in … very tight-fitting …. running outfits and … what’s this one?

Neil
Pheasant farm in Latvia. I cooked that outdoors on a grill. Rock salt, rosemary, olive oil. Instant hit with my three Fortune 500 CEO guests. Only two thousand likes. I mean, it’s not a hamburger, so no one’s interested.

Jupiter
Okay.

Neil
You know what? I want to create a panel… of designers, professors, chefs and editors. I want to chair that panel. We will judge profiles and grade them for quality. Cut out all of those followers, delete all of those likes.

Jupiter
You could hire a PR firm to fix this for you.

Neil
This is what I hate now. Asking someone to help me to become popular. I don’t want anything from anyone.

Jupiter
Is this a competition between you and your friend?

Neil
There is no competition. I mean, what does he have? I have more influence than all of these trending people. Some of them don’t even have jobs. They can’t afford my lifestyle. It makes no sense that they are more popular when I have more prestige.

Jupiter
I see that the situation is causing some stress. So we should get you on some medication and schedule a session to talk?

Neil
Talk therapy for Instagram? I’m offended by that. This is exactly what I’m talking about. No matter what I do, I get no respect…

That’s a great suggestion. I wrote one near Easter asking for Judas to betray him, but I trashed it from my notes. I thought it was too melodramatic. People laugh at him and still he persists. I’ll consider it.

He’s the 21st century’s Emperor (in his New Clothes). I’m still trying to get some body stockings from Adidas, though. Let’s see how that works out. I do not need the bummy holey pullover sweaters.

He has the worst fashion sense ever. If he weren’t a rapper, he wouldn’t be a designer. He might actually be working at a FedEx and people would ignore him as they should.
