Play It Again

Dovid followed along with his cane.

But he kept bumping into chairs. The tables were very close together, and it was hard to navigate with a cane. And a wheelchair certainly would have an even harder time. Bernice was walking pretty fast too. Dovid found himself trying to hurry up to follow her, and he actually bumped into a chair— with someone sitting on it.

talking on the phone gave him enough anxiety as it was. Never knowing whether a call might turn nasty made him dread it every time he was given a ring.

(I)n reality I’m a vegetarian. I don’t mind if other people aren’t of course, it’s not my job to regulate, but it’s my own difference I’m making, yeah? I’m a gentle soul, really. I can’t even squash bugs; I try to catch them and take them outside. No reason to harm a spider if there isn’t need, after all. And they’re such good bugs, spiders are. I mean arachnids. And sorry, there I seem to have gone off on a tangent.

Sam’s mother always despaired over Sam ever finding someone who’d be willing to put up with his neediness and silly little quirks.

Sam had never questioned how his parents interacted with him. He had only wished to be better, so that maybe one day they would… would like him more. But he hadn’t doubted that he’d deserved their displeasure. He had been a bothersome child, what with being so clumsy and gangly, and had grown into a disappointing adult who they knew would never have a standout job or bring home a person (wife) they approved of or… or any number of things.

And he knew all of that because…

Because they had told him so.
