Well here goes nothing! I am feeling kind of shaky and apprehensive today. Mom offered to give me some Xanax when I was talking to her earlier on the phone, but I declined. I worry about her doing that and it is hard for me to resist as well. I have a natural affinity for feeling drunk and flaky. I have my two morning prescribed Clonopin to take anyways. I will leave the Literacy Center at ten and wait for my mother to pick me up at eleven and then it is my duty to get us around. Dad and I were talking last night about two or three years ago I couldn’t have done this for anything in the world. I would have one of those terrible anxiety attacks I was wracked with constantly then.
Salacious Dutch Affairs…
What did Henry David Thoreau say about gossip? I’m trying to think of it now and I just recently reread Walden. He also had some choice words to say about corporations having the rights of an individual citizen. The early and thriving railroads had a hand in orchestrating all of that.
To answer Summer’s question, Summer, my father said last night that this is pretty common with the Dutch to abdicate like that when they get older and up in their years. Beatrix’s precursor did so as well. I bet we will never know the real truth, though.
