“Be safe!” she yelled as I drove away.
“Maybe I will and maybe I wont!” I thought, in defiance.
Because here’s the thing: nobody tells me what to do. And commands like “get well soon!” or “have a good one!” let other people think they can boss you around and that you don’t have a choice in the matter.
I’ll get well whenever I’m ready, thankyouverymuch. And maybe I feel like being unsafe and off-roading on my way home from your housewarming party!
Last I checked, I pay my own bills, I have an eye doctor, and I don’t have Tony Danza as a housekeeper so, yep, I’m still the boss.
