Once, A Woman Thought I Was Impotent

This came about because we were discussing life one time and she asked me why I was sad.

And I don't remember what I said, exactly, but it was something vague, like, "Life...has been very difficult for me." (Yes, I even paused like that because I like attention.)

I was meaning because of my chronic depression, because of my view of life as a series of mechanical movements - like a game that you've figured out all the rules to and thus discovered: there is no point to the game!

But she took this to mean I was impotent.

It was a simple mistake, really. They are pretty much the same thing.

I can't understand why there are no comments to this piece. I think there should be a comment. So I wrote this.
