nervous breakdown
A few weeks ago, I receive an e-mail with this subject line: "Hi From Good Morning America/ We'd Love to Talk with you Right Away!"
I find myself fascinated with the ways people find to hold it together: whether with drinking, drugs prescribed and scored, strings of sexual partners, knitting, cutting, calling their mom every Sunday to cry into the phone
I'll contemplate the meaning of life as evidenced through my dog's penchant for masturbation for hours. But ask me to read directions of any kind and I go kaboom.
