Because of some banter after my last post about getting into relationships, I remembered this wise metaphor for why we get in and stay in, even when it seems nuts, from one of my favorite films of all time, Annie Hall:
A man goes into the doctor and says, "Doctor, I need your help! My brother thinks he's a chicken!" And the doctor says, "Well maybe you should send him to an insane asylum." The man replies, "I would, but I need the eggs!"
