    Relatively Speaking

    I've pretty much had the worst summer I can remember. Lost some friends, lots of horrid arguments with the family, almost had to kill my dog, have a weird illness (or whatever?) which required some painful tests and a nearly impossible diet, so forth and so forth. I mean, it...
