Day 20 of slowest #prednisone taper ever:

Moments of clarity are the foil to my usual loopis stoopid. Hello, me.   

Not sure what a foil is? It’s literary term time: 

FOIL: A character that serves by contrast to highlight or emphasize opposing traits in another character. For instance, in the film Chasing Amy, the character Silent Bob is a foil for his partner, Jay, who is loquacious and foul-mouthed. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Laertes the unthinking man of action is a foil to the intelligent but reluctant Hamlet. The angry hothead Hotspur in Henry IV, Part I, is the foil to the cool and calculating Prince Hal.

I love that explanation. Thanks to Dr. K. Wheeler. See it HERE
