I am feeling… something that is one part fear and one part exhaustion and then just rage rage rage, white hot rage that hisses and sizzles.
I don’t know where it’s coming from, but it’s giving me a headache.
I don’t want to hear from anyone but I desperately want to be comforted. I really want my dad, but I don’t want to ask him to come down here until I really need him. And I’d be mad at him if he were here, no doubt.
I can’t really articulate where it’s coming from. I just feel caught up in it and overwhelmed by it.
Nothing is really comforting to me. And people trying to comfort me is just pissing me off.
I may be turning into a grouchy old man. Can you just see me shuffling around town in my work boots and my overalls and my John Deere cap tilted too far back on my head and I’m picking up stones out of the driveway and throwing them at passing cars and wincing and grinning at each impact?
