Credible Impressions

"Some of us grow up
doing
credible impression of model citizens
(though sooner or later hairline
cracks appear in our facades) The
rest
get dubbed eccentrics, unnerved and
undone
by other people's company, for which
we
nevertheless pine. Curses, outbursts,
and distracting chants simmer all
day
long in the crock-pots of our heads."
Amy Gerstler, For My Niece Sidney, Age 6
in the Sunday New York Times (which I read for the majority of my hostessing shift on Sunday)
