instead of kisses, I get kicks

Toronto, 2014.04.07

My daughter kicked me in the throat yesterday for asking for a kiss. I'd found her in bed, and we said our hellos and I told her I'd make breakfast. But when I asked for a kiss she simply lashed out with her tiny foot.

Recounting the story now, it reminds me of my attempts at dating.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

It has always seemed strange to me...The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
