A fabled troglodyte fears missing out. Wishing to put one pant leg on at a time like everyone else, he tolerates company. Around people he observes their standards and identifies his own standing. He grapples with identity. He fights to be formidable. He learns to not be so alarmingly decisive.
The troglodyte and his house are far removed from the neighborly town. In a place where everyone knows everyone, those not in the know are known about. Hoping to form an objective perspective on social life proves difficult. The troglodyte is subjected to overly empathic people who try their best to socialize him.
Through adventuring, the troglodyte decides if he had reason to worry.
Will this troglodyte look through people or will he return their smiles? Will one hand wash the other?
The answers and more. And more questions.
A fictitious satire.
