I must once again relinquish control and give my wallet and car keys to my father tonight. That is hard for me to do being 34 years old. I just got myself into a pickle over this whole drinking and Rosa deal. I am a terribly sensitive fellow if you don’t know by now.
“If you leave, then I am going to have Maggie put to sleep,” My father told me over the phone.
That hit home deeply. I would never want harm to come to Maggie. I have tried my best, despite my limitations, to take good care of her. She doesn’t lack for anything.
Well, I am just going to be quiet for awhile, take my nightly medications, and soon, hopefully, sleep will arrive.
