Seven years I've invested and it has come to this. She doesn't understand. She doesn't have a clue about how I feel and how it hurts that she won't even try. I have tried to explain myself but she makes me feel bad when I try. She makes me feel that my wants and needs are not real and that I'm wrong for thinking I have them. She says I'm wrong, weird and even unpatriotic. Can you believe it?
Well, I can't help it. My needs are real and if I want to do certain things, does that make me less of a human than she is? Does that make me unpatriotic? Does that make me wrong? I mean just because I enjoy Mexican Inn tortillas so much that I want to roll myself up in buttered cornmeal, does that make me wrong? If I happen to have enjoyed the delicate goodness of Bosses Meatlovers pizza so much that I want a ham hat and a bacon vest, does that mean I don't love my country? Ok, maybe homemade brownie underwear would be problematic but if that makes me wrong...I don't want to be right!
