I was five foot nine. Now I'm five foot three. What did I do wrong? What's happening to me? I'm starting to qualify my statements instead of quantifying lately. I think that means that I may soon become the man who turned into his mother, the man who turned into his mom. I've got menopause and a bachelor's degree. I no longer like Jim Carrey movies. And when I hear my neighbors have sex I want to bang on the wall, and tell them to behave themselves. So I think that means that I am the man who turned into his mother, the man who turned into his mom. I accept my fate. I shall soon transform. I shall be the one of which I was born. I'll get used to it, things have changed before. How much could it hurt, for things to change once more?

    General Comment"When I lived in Pennsylvania I lived in an house where the top floor and foyer on the main floor was split from the basement and rest of the main floor, so that two separate apartments could be made. Our foyer shared a wall with the master bedroom of the other apartment. Many days as I put on my shoes, I could hear an alarm clock that was left ringing, and on late nights we had to hang out in our attic so as to not keep our neighbors up. The last week that I lived there I left my room to go get some falafel. I walked through our foyer, I could hear our neighbors engaged in the act of lovemaking. I sat in the foyer and listened for about ten minutes. Many thoughts entered my head. The one which stood out was an urge to walk to their wall, knock on it and say "You two behave yourselves in there." As I was eating my falafel I thought about this urge and where it came from. I came to the conclusion that I was feeling the need to act as my mother would, and I wondered if I was turning into my mother as I grew up."
