Though some people seek fame, notoriety, and eye contact, there are many more who would just prefer to remain in the background. If you're a Background Boris, here are some tips to staying out of the eyes and hearts of others:
Childhood: At this time in life it's almost impossible to go unnoticed by your parents unless you've arranged for dozens of children who look exactly like you to live in your home. Find out where siblings come from and get some of those.
Teenage Years: Most of your time will be spent going to class, where teachers will inevitably call on you to share what your ideal version of puberty would be like. Don't worry—as long as you're always standing perfectly still in the corner of your classroom dressed like the president your school was named after, the teacher might mistake you for a statue.
Adulthood: Secure a job at a giant company and come to work every day. Sit in your cubicle quietly and make sure you're never gone for 6 straight months or your coworkers will assume you're a professional baseball player and, upon your return, will challenge you to hit thrown staples with your computer keyboard.
