It's the truth.

I miss dead people. I miss my parents, even though they raised me before the discovery of self-esteem and never missed an opportunity to make me feel deeply defective. (Nothing personal really, just 19th century German child-rearing.) / I miss dogs and cats. / An unfortunate creature named Chelsea, whom we adopted when she was about ten years old, long imprinted with the conviction that she was…
