The resulting in-head argument:
Self: You shouldn't be so whiney. It's pathetic.
Me: You hush. I will be whiney if I feel whiney. I DO miss all those things.
Self: Do you miss exams? Or large electric bills? Or wrong number calls?
Me: Well no...
Self: Then can it. You don't have it so bad.
Me: But. It's not fair. I get four hours a day with Kyle. And he's the only reason I'm here.
Self: What, you didn't WANT to see Europe?
Me: Well sure, for a VACATION.
Self: How many people can say they've lived in Germany?
Me: No one I know. Which is precisely why I'm not content. There is no one I know here.
Self: So make new friends.
Me: But I like my old one's just fine.
Self: You don't have to give them up. Just get MORE.
Me: Well what about the food. It's weird. I just want a freaking chimichanga. You know. AMERICAN Mexican.
Self: Why don't you try out that Italian place downtown? It looks awesome.
Me: What if the menu is in German? I can't read German!
Self: Get a pocket dictionary.
Me: It's heavy. I don't wanna carry it around.
Self: It's a POCKET dictionary. How bad can it be?
Self: Just try.
Me: I've been trying for months. I just want us to go home.
Self: Suck it up. You BOTH can't go home.
Me: I never asked for this you know.
Self: Neither did I. Am I complaining?
Me: But. You're the sensible half of my brain. That doesn't count.
Self: Sure it does.
Tell me bloggers, what have you to say to that?? Before you answer you should know: That's not even tapping the surface. They're still going at it in there.
