sociopath?

I am a Sopranos addict. So last night, Tony's in his shrink's office waiting to see her. He's looking at a magazine and finds a recipe he likes, tears it out. He neatly folds it, tucks it in his jacket pocket. For the shrink, this is further evidence that he's a sociopath.

You? Do you ever surreptitiously tear out an article, an ad, a recipe, from public reading material in a waiting room? Ever walked out with an entire magazine? Magazines will fit in purses, of course, but for you guys, it's a simple matter to tuck it under a coat, head briskly for the door. Me, yes, and I am ashamed, at least a little bit. I used to sashay out with entire magazines, then went through a period of taking them back when finished. But I hate reading half of something and not the rest. Do you? Are you an occasional page thief?

I confess, I occasionally take out a recipe, and I have even borrowed a magazine and returned it.

OMG the Sopranos last night was so nerve wracking! My husband was totally making fun of me for getting so caught up and upset by it. "It is a show," he chanted to me, "No one is actually dead!" I can't help it; when I love a show like that I get emotionally involved.

I think that Lorraine Bracco needs to go back to shrink school. If ripping out a magazine recipe is the best example she can concoct as to why Tony has sociopathic tendencies, she obviously hasn't been watching the show for the past six seasons.

Funny, my therapist jokingly remarks that with her mostly gay clientele the recipes from her Martha Stewart Living magazines in the waiting area are always missing at the end of the month. Is she treating a practice full of sociopaths? I don't think so.

I think along the same lines as Eric. Ms. Bracco needs further education regarding sociopathic tendencies. The show was engrossing but disappointing as well. I just hope the New York family gets theirs...

The only magazine I ever took, was a Playgirl, and by took I mean shoplifted. Horny boys will go to any lengths...

I will copy recipes out, but I have never even thought about.. (okay, so I thought about it) but I have never actually ripped anything out of a magazine that didn't belong to me. God, who'da thought I was such a closet goody two shoes?

The only time I've ever done that was when the guy featured in the ad was just too breathtakingly gorgeous.

There's a magazine that says "belongs on the train" that has accidentally made its way into my bag on occasion...

Everything is falling apart around Tony and he is snagging recipes?!?!?! Yes he is a sociopath, but one that is having a psychotic break.

I predict that next week he will awaken from the 8 year coma and realize his true identity, as Paulie "Walnuts" Galtierri, Jr., the bastard son of Livia Soporano and Paulie Galitierri, and that he suffered brain injuries when, as the driver for Anthony Soporano, the car crashed in to a telephone pole, when Anthony Soporano (who had no male heirs)was wacked, back in 1999.

I just ask the office if I can have the magazine. They always say yes.
