So I haven't talked about Mary Worth in AGES, even though it remains as hilarious as ever.
Lately Mary has taken a break from meddling in other people's lives and is attending some New Agey resort in the desert called "Pax". (Ooooh, Latin for "peace", don'tcha know.) After sampling all the physical joys the resort has to offer--swimming pool, yoga classes, etc.--she decides to try a "sharing circle".
Now, I should warn you up front: Mojo is not a HUGE FAN of such things. Occasionally I am obligated to participate, and I respect the openness and integrity a lot of people throw into these things, but I do so with as little actual participation as I can get away with. This is something of a personal thing, since Mojo likes to play close to the chest most of the time. Besides, what's there to say when the person before you has just spent a half hour relating every terrible thing their drunken parents have snapped at them over the course of their life? I have long realized that my life, compared to most, has thus far not been all that bad, ya know? I have very little to complain about, yet some people glare at you like you're holding back if you don't have at least ONE complaint to share. It's not an act I particularly wish to follow, but There You Are sometimes.
