Brenda: Do you know what it’s like?  It’s like this horrible, mysterious swamp that I’ve gotten completely lost in.  I’m in quicksand, and the more I struggle, the deeper and muckier it gets.  And there are terrifying, unidentifiable creatures all around me, just out of reach, but I can see them in the corner of my eye, and I don’t know if they’re going to eat me or save me or just watch me sinking farther and farther down into this goo that is not of my own making.   I’m speaking, of course, about my love life.
