I saved this quote some time ago and never posted it. It's from Grey's Anatomy. It's a show we used to watch religiously in this house, but have only seen bits and pieces in the last few seasons. It's a monologue delivered by Dr. MIranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson):
I'm in the middle of a divorce. People call me the Nazi and it's not because of my ice blue eyes. I spend 12 hours a day carving people up and I like it. I have a child and I have no room for casual anything. I'm angry all of the time and deeply confused because a lot of people in my life have let me down recently and one of them was me. It's devastating but not completely because it turns out I like sleeping crosswise in the bed and not having to shave my legs. My three-year-old used to be potty trained and now he isn't because his father no longer lives with us and his world no longer makes sense and the only thing he thinks he can control is his bladder so he urinates in a lot of places you wish he wouldn't urinate. You want lunch or you want to show me the scan?
I don't have much in common with Dr. Bailey on paper or off, but I love this quote and the angry, well thought out passion and truth it holds.
