    I recently suffered through press previews of both Cats and Dr. Dolittle and quickly remembered why I rarely go to movies anymore – much less, write reviews!

    “My boy, I think someday/You’ll find a way/To make your natural tendencies pay/You’ll be a dentist!/You have a talent for causing things pain/Son, be a dentist/People will pay you to be inhumane/Your temperament’s wrong for the priesthood/And teaching would suit you still less/Son, be a dentist/You’ll be a success!”

    “_Life’s just much too hard today, "

    I hear ev’ry mother say

    The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore

    And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose

    No more running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

    They just helped you on your way through your busy dying day_.

    You are right that the age gaps between the kids make a big difference.

    Friends of mine had a late-in-life surprise baby. There was 10 years difference between the baby and the middle child. Both the older brothers were super-protective of their “baby brother” growing up.

    Today, the boys are 47, 45 and 35 respectively, and are still very close but completely different personalities.

    The oldest is a VP for a resort/hotel chain. The middle one is a gourmet chef, and the baby is a surgeon at a trauma center.

    The Impeachment of tRUMP is a joke/ from the moment that Moscow Mitch spoke/ “Don’t worry” said he/ “We’ll soon set you free/ to continue to lie, to obstruct, and provoke.”

    Nah, we already know how that particular drama is going to end.

    I doubt anyone can work up any excitement for watching a trial where the jury has already gone on record to say they’ll acquit as quickly as possible.

    Elizabeth is experiencing “middle child syndrome”. It’s real and can have long-lasting effects if not recognized, and the proper help given to the middle child in adjusting to the changes in their life.
