She thought she was feeling depressed, she did not acknowledge a single negative factor in her life (unlike Kisha, she did at least admit to having symptoms of depression) when I asked Maureen why.

She reported these facts nearly clinically, as though talking about another person. As she explained this, sitting upright for a gurney in tan, cuffed shorts, bare feet unself-consciously exhibited, making good eye contact and chatting in a pleasing, round tone, I happened to be maybe not convinced Maureen had made of the same quality an accommodation to living a sexless life as she could have by herself and me personally think.
