You sure do love a problem. You’re so vain. It’s always about you, isn’t it? The problems you create so that you can solve them. The power you have to wield so that you can feel important. Did your father and I not tell you you were special enough when you were little? Did we not give you enough hugs? Aww, baby. This uppity fantasy world you’ve decided to be a part of… it’s not real, boo. Now you need to come on back down to this planet. Where the world doesn’t revolve around you.
