I feel bad.

Right now.  this very instant, I feel bad.

Not sick, but upset with myself.

Why?

Because I am looking forward to tomorrow.

David goes with his mentor for 6 hours.

That doesn’t mean I won’t worry about what he is up to.  Rather it means that I will worry a bit less.

I just feel like I shouldn’t look forward to him being away from home.  Yet, in some ways, it is the highlight of our week.  No arguing.  No attitude.  No self-righteous indignation and blaming others for what he has done.  (at least until he gets home and blames the mentor for what ever he did.)

arguing with David reminds me of this scene in Rain Man.
