Hi, I'm Steve.
Not everyone gets to be exciting, and I elevate un-eventful to an art form. Maintain an even keel, that's my motto.
You never know when an Adventurous Astronaut is going to come falling out of the sky. Or if a Daring Damsel has Designs on accidentally bricking you into a castle. In the face of these uncertainties I must remain calm, steady, predictable.
Someone has to watch. Being a face in the crowd is a noble duty. I was there the day they launched the Rocket into the Thingiverse. I witnessed the groundbreaking of the great castle. I ran through the streets when the Aliens invaded, and cowered in terror when the Dragons stormed the keep.
Dull, Unexciting, Uneventful. One of the multi-colored multitude. That's me.
I was once fired from a catapult. Another time, they left me floating on the sea. I've ridden a mechanical spider. Been tied to train tracks, and taken lessons in judo from a humanoid robot. Base jumped from the office balcony once, and hang glided on paper wings.
Not everyone gets to be exciting, so I just try to maintain an even keel.
