A little more information

The two main activities in my life: Helping the hungry in the late hours of the night and helping guitar players sound better one amp at a time.

I always try to remember that in order to do good one has to take action and actually do something.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I have watched the city and Southern California change for well over half a century.

..... because it is what nice and normal people do.

Daily life events - Last night I was part observer and part participant ... a fly on the wall in my own mind as I tried to understand an unfolding dialogue going on right in front of me.

Setting the stage:  Lady and man exchanging banter.  It is clear that the two of them know each other very well and have history together.

Lady states to the man - "you always want me to just make you feel better and fix things when you feel bad".  Her tone is if this is a bad thing, something that should not be expected by the man.  Her tone and expression seem to be chosen to either make the man feel as if he was foolish or just plain stupid and his expectations were ridiculous. 

The man attempts to point out how he does this for her as a matter of fact - fixes things, comforts her when she is sick, confused, troubled, concerned, or is just there to listen when she needs a friend or advice.  It takes the man over fifteen minutes to attempt to make his point as he is continually interrupted.  It seems to me that this lady is determined to exercise total control of the conversation.  I do not think the lady ever heard the man or understood his point.


Some people have logic that does not always seem human.

Well lady ....  when friends, couples, or any two people who know each other and have any sort of relationship interact or get together it is normal to expect that as human beings we try to help one another, listen to each other, offer support and comfort if possible.  .... because it is what nice and normal people do.
