I had a nice weekend with Sophia. Tonight we are sitting in separate rooms. She is in the bedroom, playing online poker on her laptop. I am in my office, writing this nonsense, in between stints on Twitter and Facebook.
There is no conflict between us, between man and woman. It is just a time for reflection, like Yom Kippur. We just want to be alone.
Last week, I vacuumed the house, and when I was done, I left the vacuum standing in the center of my office, still plugged into the wall. It was a passive-aggressive move against myself. I would finish the job, but not quite.
The vacuum is still standing there, in front of the bookcase, like a statue.
