How to Tell If Your Therapist Has Been Paying Attention

My husband went to see his shrink the other day.

"I don't want to be a paralegal anymore," he told him. "I want to change careers. I think I'd like to be a nurse."

The shrink said, "Why don't you just get a better paralegal job?"

My husband said, "Obviously, you haven't been listening to me for the last five years. As I told you before, the law can be wonderful as a mistress, but is terrible as a wife."

Is that a line from a play? It sounds familiar...

Anyway, I am adding you back...was just a mistake. Sorry!!

No, it's just a line from my husband's real-life therapy session. His life is like a play, I guess.

Thanks for putting me back on your blogroll! I need all the readers I can get!

So I totally JUST checked my comments on my Brazil FAQ post, and found your comments! You probably don't even remember ...

Anyway, I'm so glad you found me so that I could find you! I love the way you think.

(And psssst. It's the Mormons who drink hot chocolate for breakfast every day here. We don't drink coffee! Otherwise, as you said, it's just coffee coffee coffee every day.)

That Girl in Brazil: Thanks for stopping by! Your blog is great, BTW. Thanks for becoming a follower!

Dylan: Actually, he IS married to his job -- it's one of those dysfunctional marriages that take years to end (if they ever do).
