The Right Dose

<  Kale

by Gloria Garfunkel  Bad Blood  > 


I am taking this medication so I can stop hating my husband. He doesn’t bother me when the dose is high enough. His habits, like pasting drain hair on the shower wall, leaving toothpaste spit in the sink, keeping the toilet seat up, various disgusting guy stuff. I glide right past these things on the right dose. Other things don’t bother me either, like my children bickering in the back of the car with tailgaters beeping behind me on the highway. I even feel sorry for the tailgaters for being in such a helpless rush. On the right dose, I’m the person I want to be except I don’t cry at funerals.
