Status: Finished  |  Genre: Memoir  |  House: Booksie Classic

You've long seen yourself as an introverted-extrovert.

Would you say that you like people?

Is it difficult for you at time's to connect to people?

‘I like people.

I love them in fact.

I just need them in small, incremental doses.

I can’t eat a whole slice of people.

I become filled with, a rage, anxiety, the way I’d imagine a paranoid schizophrenic would.

I immediately start to plot my escape.

I’ll tell you something.

I love my daughter almost unhealthily.

My darling Blu, for whom I’d burn the world to keep warm, but do you know when I love her the most?

When she’s sound asleep.

I love people nonetheless.

They just require a lot more of me than they’ve ever understood.’
