Not That

"But I got a late start."

"How so?"

"The back story was more about troubled imagination than anything else. Wouldn't its retelling just depress everybody?"

"Sounds like it depressed you."

"Yes, very. For decades."

But from a certain angle, it was funny. Very, very funny. So, maybe the way to tell the story. As if it was mostly experienced that way. Only a well crafted hint quite the opposite was true. And that, dear reader, is how to revise the telling of a type of history that causes revulsion?
