taking the passive out of passive-aggressive

Wednesday, August 18, 2004

I consider leaving my husband three times a year. I think this is a healthy thing, to wonder what might happen in my life without him--it makes my marriage feel volitional, as though it were a choice. I don't do it on a schedule or anything--he's just especially annoying three times a year, on average. And every time, so far, I have decided that it's worthwhile to keep on keepin' on.

My mom tells me that my dad was just as annoying, and I suspect that may be why she put him in that awful crypt after he died. I don't think I'll do anything like that--I might die first, anyway.
