I met a friend at the gym this evening who was explaining that she wanted a flat of her own because her parents "wouldn't be around for ever." I asked how old they were and she said her dad was 71. That's the same age as me. So, it's good to be reminded that I won't be around for ever
We are famous for "Stockholm syndrome": "Q: Hey, what's up with Matt? His Dad is on social security, his mom got laid off, his sister's kids get free school lunches, he collects federal financial aid for college, and he only makes minimum wage working at Walmarts. Yet he keeps talking about how we need to cut taxes for the wealthy and quit spending so much on social programs. A: Yeah, he thinks he's going to be a millionaire soon. He's got Economic Stockholm Syndrome." (Urban Dictionary)
I believe that there was only one marriage though I might be wrong .. I do recall reading about at least one though. I think possibly only a certain type of person would want to go on a show like that, just as only a certain type of person would want to go on something like Big Brother (then again I was flabbergasted to learn that my ex had applied to go on Big Brother many years ago. I am glad he did not get picked)
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
