the veiled sibyl

I have heard and said more inanities, since you took me in tow, than in all the rest of my life.

Sunrise and Stolidus

This bit of dialogue from the movie Clerks caught my attention the other day:

RANDAL: So you'll continue being miserable all the time, just because you don't have the guts to face change?

DANTE: My mother told me once that when I as three, my potty lid was closed, and instead of lifting it, I chose to shit my pants.

RANDAL: Lovely story.

DANTE: Point is - I'm not the kind of person that disrupts things in order to shit comfortably.

Yeah. That's pretty much Ol' Stolidus in a nutshell.

For Sunrise's sake, I've been trying to be "objective" about the situation, but that only worked for about a day, then I was right back to the hatin' (hence, "Stolidus") His indecisiveness and wishy-washiness are debilitating and he doesn't even realize it! He's just so fearful of everything. The man is not amoeboid, so I know he has a spine. . . perhaps it's made of gelatin?
