Among other things, some more positive, I am prickly and difficult. "Everyone has a hole in their donut," Dobe taught me (one of the three Rules of the Universe), yet the hole in mine still takes me by surprise every once in a while. I'm not much fun if you get close to it: fear, confusion, and pain switch on primal defense mechanisms. Be persistent and forgiving, if you can— I'm in here somewhere.
Now I wait for a washing machine and watch the X-Files. The truth is out there.
