I thought of that old joke, y’know, this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, „Doc, my brother’s crazy; he thinks he’s a chicken.“ And, the doctor says, „Well, why don’t you turn him in?“ The guy says, „I would, but I need the eggs.“ Well, I guess that’s pretty much now how I feel about relationships; y’know, they’re totally irrational, and crazy, and absurd, and… but, I guess we keep goin‘ through it because, most of us… need the eggs.
