I've been the asexual best friend-type for a long time now. I've got to say, at many points in my life I've been really fucking sick of it. Once, just once, I'd like there to be enough sexual tension to make a truly meaningful friendship all but impossible. On the other hand, maybe I should just accept my lot in life and shut the fuck up. Thank you, Dr. Denis Leary. "That's the title of my new book, Shut the Fuck Up! by Dr. Denis Leary. These guys come in, 'Doctor, I'm not happy.' 'Shut the fuck up! Next!' 'I'm not happy.' 'Shut the fuck up! Next!' 'He just told me to shut the fuck up and nobody had ever told me that before; I feel so much better about myself.'"
