Woody Allen said it best when asked about “relationships,” and he told a story to illustrate. He said I think this story speaks about relationships.
A man came in to see a psychiatrist. When the psychiatrist asked him what the problem was, the man said, “Well, it’s my brother. I think he’s crazy.”
“Why do you think that,” asked the Doctor.
“Well,” said the man, “he thinks he’s a chicken.”
“Hmmm ..” the doctor replied, “that does sound sort of strange. Why don’t you bring him in.”
“I can’t,” said the man.
“Well, why not,” asked the doctor.
“Because, I need the eggs.” the man said.
I guess we are intertwined a little more than we like to think. And, we always see the other’s strangeness even though we have just as much of our own strangeness, and often we have “complimentary” strangeness.
Today may you smile a lot and gripe a little. Be Bless!
