(no subject)

Tried having a conversation with my sister about the recent problems, and she was so full of her own need to castigate our Dad for not showing up at my nephew's Bar Mitzvah three years ago that I couldn't shut her up, and eventually had to hang up on her. I hate that.

I begin to understand why shrinks can charge hundreds of dollars to just listen to people. I do it all the time; I thought it was a necessary part of human behavior. But as time goes on, I find fewer and fewer people who do it.
