Life was boring.

All quotes from 'Hard Love' by Ellen Wittlinger

"I am immune to emotion. I have been ever since I can remember. Which is helpful when people appeal to my sympathy. I don't seem to have any."

"[She] lays her life out for people to see, like she loves the weird way she is, and if you had any sense you would too."

"...talking about how life was boring, but you weren't supposed to admit it."

"...but I hated talking to people on the phone. Nobody ever sounded right when you couldn't see them, when you were connected by the magic of fiber optic cables. They either sounded fake happy, like they were so excited you called, or they grunted and grumbled as if they'd have to go get Prozac if you intended to talk much longer."
