“The thing about people who are truly and malignantly crazy: their real genius is for making the people around them think they themselves are crazy. In military science this is called Psy-Ops, for your info.”
― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest
I just had a long, miserable, mind-boggling, awful encounter with my soon-to-be-ex. When I walked outside afterwards, I was surprised that the world was still moving along as usual — people shopping, rushing home from work, laughing, loud.
It took me a few blocks to feel like them again.
David Foster Wallace said it better than I ever could.
