News at Eleven: Who am I to tell my measly story?

And yet Ms. [Jehanne] Dubrow did. She knows too well the language I spoke to myself when I couldn't get to sleep and would wander around the house, peeking in on the kids as they slept, and how I looked longingly at the phone and the mailbox. Damn her, I didn't want or need to be reminded.

So I thought.
