So I am currently in the process of selling my soul to the devil, whose present physical form is the credit card companies. The price of souls is overrated anyway, what with trying to keep mind and body together, souls are just excess baggage. And hey, if the Messianic head is valued at 30 pieces of silver, I could do a lot worse.
Furthermore, one must be seen to be doing oneâ€™s bit for the cause: if the capitalist imperialists are not going to extend lines of credit to Zimbabwe, it is my noble duty as an esteemed citizen of said country to sink myself into as much debt as is humanly possible.
Then it comes to the bit where you have to deal with the paperwork, and I am filling out the form, and I get to the box for gender. The options are as follows: Male, Female, Other. I am thinking, what the hell is â€˜otherâ€™? Other like some confused bisexual male? Other as in a transvestite caught between the latest round of hormones and top up surgery? When on earth did â€˜otherâ€™ become a viable option?
