unrequited-unrequired 2

Hello Linnie.. Well I dont think I've ever came across your 'problem' before ever do
you really feel bad about this.? Munch munch mmm..gulp Yes I feel so..Well so torn; really..' I'm a cannibal let's face it, and I enjoy the black ones most.' So that makes me a racist as well.' I really need help.' Well I'm willing to talk to you here
Linnie, have you tried professional help? I did try once but there's no catagory for
me so I turned to you in the hope the publicity might, get my situation to a larger audience.' have you always felt like this Linnie? No I just felt it come on as I turned
21..' I think you should really talk to your doctor again Linnie, how long since you last went down there.? Well I never went down Tom, but I thought you said you did not fit any catogory they had.? Well yes but I checked on the computer because I have a fear of going outside, thats acrophobia Lennie, are you aware of that condition? WOW Tom is that a condition..? Yes Lennie.. I'm real glad I called here Tom its easy to talk to you, I'd really like to get out of this fix I'm in..' And there's more.. I don't think I will really be settled in my mind till I go tight rope walking over the grand canyon.' Well Linnie these things seem to be quite incompatible with each other, I think given the graveness of the combined mass of
them you could qualify for state help... How much..? I mean I could..? Yes I tell you what Lennie, if you call back next week I'll get the contact number of a great no win no fee lawyer, and I guarantee He'll get you a low rise suburban res and payment week by week to help with all this stress your under, now how does that sound to you? Gee well that sounds like a real help Tom.' & does it give you more hope Linnie.? Yes a lot..' And do you feel a bit better? Oh yes Tom.. Right I'll wait for your call next week.' bye Tom, bye now Linnie..'
