Compartment Man

I’ve always tended to compartmentalize my life. A lot of people do this, but I admit that maybe I take it to extremes.

I like to keep my social life separate from my work life. I like to keep my work life separate from my romantic life. I like to keep my friends separate from each other. Or, if it’s already a group of friends, I like to keep this group of friends separate from that group of friends.

I like to keep my friends separate from my girlfriend. And I certainly like to keep my girlfriend separate from my wife.

I like to keep my children separate from each other. I prefer to hang out with them one-on-one. I like to keep the cat away from the dog. My son has a hamster and a turtle who have never even seen each other.
