To find out why reading is so important, read this.

My first and only mistake was to ask Jill Y what was wrong. When a man asks a woman that question, there are only two possible answers. You can be told what’s wrong, shut up and hope that a wormhole appears and does its thing but hope has a habit of never showing up when you need it most. This is bad but it doesn’t even come close to the hell of the second scenario. The second scenario is when you ask a woman what’s wrong and she tells you that nothing is wrong. When this happens, you need to read.

  2. Perhaps your imaginary daughter is Sylvia Plath:

    So daddy, I’m finally through.
    The black telephone’s off at the root,
    The voices just can’t worm through.

    1. I think you might be on to something Bill. I’ll have to check her birth cert and see what’s on it.
