Nosebleeds and headaches

– did your father beat you?
– they took turns.
– I thought you only had one father.
– every man has. I mean, my mother got in hers.
– did she love you?
– only as an extension of herself.
– what else can love be?
– the common sense to care very much for something very good.
– it needn’t be related to bloodline. it can be a red beachball or a piece of buttered toast.
– you mean to say that you can LOVE a piece of buttered toast?
– only some, sir. on certain mornings. in certain rays of sunlight.
– love arrives and departs without notice.
