He's At It Again

(Originally 11/5/06)

I come through the door from the gym and he's all, "Wanna go to the movies?" and I'm all "Why did I tell him I would yesterday" and he's all "I wrote a new song" and I'm just wishing for a brain anuerism, and he's all "Let's leave in an hour" and in my mind I'm thinking, "Go **&% yourself".

No marginal awareness that I exist ourside of him. Not the slightest idea that I might want to live a life of my own. No periphery AT ALL that I don't prefer his company.

This is so bullcrap.

And I have to find a way to tell him this, because he isn't going to understand unless I do. He does not have the mental equipment to connect these dots.

I remember a half year ago or more, I likened this situation to the movie "Sideways". But now it's not funny, and I am not getting any awards.

I think the reason people found Sideways so compelling is because we got to go along for the ride while Mr. Giamatti's character grew.

Not because his character's friend's life got any better or that Paul's character could expect anything different from him.

Then that begs the question; Am I growing? Is my life compelling?
