Playing Nice [Mar. 4th, 2012|12:04 pm]
Tony Grist
I can barely stand to be in the same room as my father-in-law. And I've just spent a week being actively solicitous for his health- running to and from the hospital with my mother-in-law (who drives me crackers) and sitting by his bed of pain.  I think I deserve an A* for suppressing my true feelings.

He's over the worst now- and can be expected home within the next couple of days.

Re: its hard to be nice....

Yeah, one does (keep on going and going, I mean). One can't just abandon people.

You do. Or at least I hope someone takes you out for a serious drink.

Wow, can I identify with your feelings here. Believe me I KNOW how it is. You are in my thoughts. And yes, you do deserve an A+++!

you definitely deserve an A. Maybe a whole BUNCH of A's.

And I'm sure your wife appreciates it very much too.

You deserve sainthood, or at least beatitude.

There is something fundamentally wrong with having to suppress your true feelings, though, something that is probably unhealthy for all concerned.
