Anyhoo: my son came into the room, took one look at the television, and said, "What are you watching?"
I replied, "It's New York, New York--it's not very good, but I can't seem to stop watching it."
Gently removing the remote from my hand, he said, "Here--let me help you with that," and changed the channel. Whew.
Here are a few other things I sometimes need help with:
- editing the contents of my closet
- re-watching movies
- keeping all the shit I've agreed to do straight
- remembering to attend board meetings
- buying ever more stuff
It's lucky that I have people who love me, people who will take me by the hand.
