Star: That came out wrong. Way wrong. Don’t do that. Just don’t care about what anyone else thinks about it.

Dingo: I just love when you say the F-word. It makes me feel more normal and I want to giggle like a kid.

Star: I save it for those times I want to put my foot in my mouth and say the opposite of what I’m trying to say.

Dingo: Okay, I’ll work on that. I just feel so pressured sometimes. But can we talk about something else?

Star: Always.

Dingo: Not always. Sometimes you make me stay on topic. “Dan, don’t date 300,000 people at a time!” and stuff like that.  Gosh, you said date who I want, and you said it right after you said not to date 300,000 people at a time. What if I want to date 300,000 people. I’m going to be in quite the mental conundrum.

Star: Don’t be a smartass.

Dingo: You’ve been my therapist for a long time. You should have clinically diagnosed me as a smartass by now.

Star: It’s in your records.

Dingo: Really?

Star: No.

Dingo: Dang. That would have been awesome.

Star: What else did you want to talk about?

Dingo: Sex.

Star: What about it?

Dingo: It’s fun.

Star: I’m glad to hear that.

Dingo: Like, really, really fun. I think doing the Insanity workout has made it even better.

Star: Oh yeah?

Dingo: I don’t know. I haven’t gotten any action for a while. But I theorize and visualize and I’m pretty sure the Insanity Workout has upped my game.

Star: You’re weird.

Dingo: I know. But you’re my therapist and you’re not allowed to say that.

Star: I’m saying it as your friend.

Dingo: Thank you.

Star: You’re welcome.

Dingo: Can I talk about something else? You didn’t care about my new sex skills as much as I thought you would.

Star: We’re about out of time.

Dingo: Fine. So, tell me more of your insights on doing everything in my life alongside my fans. I’ve actually been struggling a lot with that lately.

Star: I know. And I thought they were called super peeps, Dingo.

Dingo: Now who’s the smartass?

When I go to therapy I joke a lot. Being my therapist is not without its challenges.

I’m pretty sure I actually do have good stuff going on when I make it to therapy.

PS. I totally took Noah on a vacation last week (airplane and everything), and none of you ever heard a peep from me about it. I did it.

It was hard.

But I did it.
