It would be good to be a king

Delusions of grandeur - a delusion (common in paranoia) that you are much greater and more powerful and influential than you really are
Since I will very likely never be famous, I've been thinking I could settle for maybe being a king. Having a Web site called Dizgraceland and calling myself Tim-Elvis, you would likely think that I would like to be the King, i.e. Elvis. But no, there can only be one Elvis (regardless of what countless impersonators in Las Vegas would have you believe). And I would never really want to be Elvis anyway. Because, although Elvis was and is famous, he is also dead.

That aside, I just think it would be kind of cool to be a king and sit on a throne wearing a crown and proclaim things. Occasionally, maybe I could whip out a sword and randomly knight people. Oh and servants could feed me grapes...ones without seeds, because it wouldn't be kingly to spit.

But I guess there aren't really too many kings left in the world anymore. That kind of makes me sad. So I guess I can't be a king either.
