Overheard at Booth 4: Confession

Gary said, "Lisa, I have to confess something to you.  I can't keep living this lie."

"Oh God," Lisa said.  "You're gay."

"No, not that."

"Then you're leaving me and the kids."

"No.  I'm ... I'm a writer!"

Lisa broke down into hysterics.

Gary tried to comfort her.  "But, it's not like I'm leaving you and the kids!"

"It's worse!" she said.  "You'll still be here - physically.  But emotionally - you'll be somewhere we will never be able to reach you."
