My all-time favorite comedian is Brian Regan. He is funny and clean — a hard combination to find these days. In one of his routines, he talks about running into a “Me Monster,” a guy who doesn’t realize he is doing all the talking for everyone else and trying to top everyone’s story.
It’s funny … and convicting.
Identifying other Me Monsters is easy. It’s not hard to spot people who are completely consumed with themselves. Once you’ve met one, you will never forget them. Me Monsters are everywhere. They lurk in sports, schools, businesses, communities and even in families.
