On Dress Your Family In Your Lover's Shoes

Wow. I wish this story was a whole book. So ominous and claustrophobic and menacing.

Also, "Sam slept for the entire flight from Ireland back to Chicago, meaning I could hold his hand without him tugging it away." I had a boyfriend like this once, and now I wish I could go back in time and scream at myself for accepting this kind of treatment.

I get into this bad loop with returning phone calls and answering emails from friends and family I don't see very often, where I don't do it immediately, and then some time passes, and I feel weird about how long its taken me to get back to them, so I wait longer, etc.etc. cue Avoidance Spiral of Shame.
