Counter My Doris Day streak has come skipping and ginghaming its way to the
fore in recent days . . . It"s what happens when your immediate
family is a convoluted mass of divorce and fragmentation. At the end,
deep down, you want to be the one to break the pattern . . . The
Doris streak . . . makes me want to be neat and nuclear; sometimes it
even makes me think that I wouldn"t mind being suburban.And,
obviously, the Doris streak is often at odds with the rest of me, or
at least with the parts that smoke and drink and occasionally spend a
happy half-hour drying the dishes absent-mindedly while wondering
what it would be like to snog strange people who really, really
fancied you and were groaning with desire at the thought of kissing
you. If they existed. And one knew them. Hypothetically.
