A third possibility for WET: boyfriend is actually turned on by the bedwetting, but embarrassed to say so directly, and is making a joke to cover that.

Great Ethiopian food, among the best in Seattle. As far as I can tell no longer doing the waffles, etc. which is probably just as well.

"Liberal parents like me, the mistake we make is thinking of ourselves as the kind of people who don’t interfere in public schools." Huh. My liberal parents 50 years or so ago though of themselves as the kind of people who needed to show up at every school board meeting and be actively involved in recruiting & campaigning for school board candidates. And the result of what they and some of their friends did was that our somewhat conservative town usually had a progressive school board and progressive approach to matters such as sex education.

@23, no she is not nearly sufficiently under control for that.

Once again, a case where the people who say "it wasn't about race" must know they are lying, because if things like this were happening to white people they'd be up in arms.

For better or worse, this is what you get when you try to do something by consensus.

@10 re: fascism = corporatism: have you ever actually read Mussolini, or did you just pick that up off some web site? The sense in which he uses "corporatism" in "Il Fascismo" has little to do with the meaning of that term in present-day America: it refers to something more like guilds that integrate workers, supervisors, managers, and owners within an industry. Not that I at all like fascism, and what it became in power was even uglier that what it pretended to be before obtaining power, but in the early 1920s he was still sort of a syndicalist, though a very odd sort in that he believed in having these "corporations" include owners as well as workers.

I agree that in practice fascism merged state and corporate power, but it is either ignorant or disingenuous to say that when Mussolini made that remark about "corporatism" he meant anything like what that connotes in present-day America.

Saw it last night. Talented cast, but the piece itself is a boring, annoying, shallow, pretentious turd.

TL;DR (I tried, I tried) but sounds like he should do her the favor of breaking up, and should resume therapy before he tries dating again.
