husband has been letting out bits of his recent conversations with M. They haven't spoken much, but certainly more than we have spoken in years. M's interview that I bought him clothing for went well. He thinks that they will hire him. I hope so. He's also looking at a temp job that requires a driver's license, and told husband that he needed to get a learner's permit and learn to drive. husband said he should ask L. I am the world's worst passenger, even when the driver knows what they are doing. I'm not doing it. L said "Not in my car! He'll kill my clutch!" What I wonder is how did he lose a beater car two Christmases ago that got stolen/towed if he didn't have a license or know how to drive? M talked to me on the phone just after Christmas, full of his usual "Life owes me" attitude. I gave very basic monosyllabic answers. I was pretty unimpressed. husband told me that when he took the phone back M told him "She didn't seem very interested in what I had to say." Duh. But the best one that I have heard yet is this little nugget let loose in husband's and my therapy yesterday. "M is beginning to see how hard life can be. He had to sell most of his video game systems and games." Life is hard, isn't it!
