I know this guy that doesn’t say much when your around him and keeps pretty quiet. He smiles a lot. He takes orders from his wife well. He talks well in small groups of two or three but in larger groups he just sort of lingers, smiles, and keeps to himself. I often think this guy is getting pushed around by his wife, life, and society in general. I had the thought recently though that he just might have everything figured out. Maybe he’s just playing the game the right way and everyone thinks they are controlling him but they really aren’t. Maybe he’s content in his own little happy place in some chamber of his mind. Maybe he escapes mentally and doesn’t care what it looks like from the outside. Maybe he’s found his peace and really doesn’t care what anyone thinks. I’d like to know what’s in this guys mind but I do t think I ever will.
A while back, my parents, wife, and I were joking about keeping the placenta when Rhian is born. Some of the ideas we came up with are below.
