I just came out of therapy. This is how it went with my therapist, Brenda.
Therapist: Hi, Neil.
Neil: Hello, Brenda.
Therapist: How are you doing?
Neil: I want to show you something on the computer. My blog post today. I wrote it last night.
We both sit by her desktop.
Neil: Friday is my birthday.
Therapist: Happy early birthday.
Neil: This is sort of embarrassing, but I asked readers to send in photos of their bras.
Therapist: I’m reading that.
Neil: Now, I’m thinking the whole thing is just crazy. Why would I ask for women’s bras?
Therapist: Why do you think?
Neil: Maybe I’m just feeling horny and lonely now that I’m moving out soon.
Therapist: Then you wouldn’t just ask for bras hanging on towel racks, would you? It probably is deeper than that.
Neil: Well, what else could it be?
Therapist: Maybe the bra represents… women… blah blah… nurturing… we all… blah blah… need love… you are a man… blah blah… sexuality important… need comfort… mother… and breasts… blah blah…
Neil: Hmmm… if I asked you to show me your bra, would you do it?
Brenda lifts up her blouse to show me her frilly pink bra.
Neil: Thanks, Brenda.
Therapist: Anytime, Neil. But time’s up!
