I can think of like a dozen times in my life when someone has commented on the fact that, for whatever the reason was at the time (maybe there was no reason), I was growing “increasingly despondent.”

Man, that’s a good word, isn’t it? “Despondent” is good.

Pretty good!

If y’all’s still out there in TV land, let me say this here on this godforsaken website: being human is a dark tide, baby. Despondency comes and goes, baby. Thanks for noticing though!
