…who needs therapy?
Husband: *watches suspiciously as I place Monkey in the cart* What in the world are you doing…
Me: *pats Monkey on the head* Coping with my new reality. I know this probably isn’t exactly socially acceptable, but is it wrong that it actually makes me feel better somehow…?
Husband: *blinks slowly and walks away to look at something else, leaving me to enjoy the beginnings of my apparent mental decay.*
