I chain chew, going through 18-pack after 18-pack, sometimes two or three in a day, especially when I’m feeling particularly emotional, or writing on deadline. The chain chewing doesn’t feel good, but it has come to feel necessary.
Regardless of whether or not a man was relationship material, I had no idea how to keep things light. How did you care for someone only half-heartedly? More vexing, how could you stand someone caring only half-heartedly for you?
