  1. Oh man.

    And now I know why Dennis seems to act so defeated and almost exhausted in your other chapters. It definitely would be taxing to constantly fear the future, not knowing which problems can be stopped and which ones run in the family. I’d react with his passive nature too in that case. All those antics…at least his kids aren’t acting like total Rackets yet. Better sigh and accept nudity and teenage rebellion.

    Or at least that’s how I’m reading it.

    Bravo. 🙂

  2. Wow. This was beautiful and sad and beautifully sad. It really illustrates the pain and fear that Dennis has been living with all this time. It’s a bit surprising to know that he has all these thoughts and fears, actually, seeing how he often puts up a tired but in a way quietly brave front. Though his fears and regrets make a lot of sense considering what kind of a family the Rackets are. I really, really liked this!

  3. This is a beautiful chapter. Dennis seems so defeated. I think he’s doing a half decent job and he’s trying to start over for himself and his kids. He should stop beating up on himself. Poor guy. I loved this chapter. It felt real and moving. It’s nice to read from Dennis’ perspective. he’s one of my favorites.
