Out of Control
I’ve become too cynical of late. I was talking to my boss’s daughter the other day, and she asked how I was. Rather than give a perfunctory “I’m fine” answer, I actually told her. What exactly I hoped to gain from this I do now know, but she was understanding enough for someone who had no reason to bother with me.
Why did I feel the need to foist myself on someone — anyone — like that? I can only figure that I am subconsciously trying to drag everyone else down with me. That’s just not nice… no wonder no one thinks it amusing when I self-flagellate any more.
