Doctor Zhivago

Posted by Lizzie on 09/27/05

With his melancholy Russian temperament, the BOOG is often quick to espouse the grim wisdom of his people. With our diagnosed melancholia, we are often quick to medicate. This morning, as usual, we awoke with an anxiety attack and a crushing feeling of doom.

BOOG: “What’s wrong?”
Hag: “I had a really stressful dream.”
BOOG: “Honey, your life is really hard. Even your dreams are stressful.”

* Somewhat related — our favorite Slavic joke. Q: What are the three things a person can watch forever? A: Fire, water, and other people working.
