I took a quiz
in a book.
The results indicate
that I am not in touch with my feelings.
I'm not sure how I feel about that.
Okay, I admit that when the school counselor said,
"We think she has ADHD,"
I nodded, all calm and polite,
just as if my manicure wasn't maiming my palms so badly
that I would walk around with unacknowledged guilt stigmata
for a week.
And, sure, the last time I got a call that Mom was in the ER
I immediately fired up the old pipe of dreams
and started asking her doctor
if this drug or that drug might be right for her.
No, I didn't cry when Old Yeller died.
Still, I think I'm pretty in touch with my feelings.
I mean, I have to be.
How else am I going to push them away?
