utils:(economics) a hypothetical unit measuring satisfaction
I read a book today, again. My mom and I have both read this book. There is a passage we identify as our own where the daughter tells her frail dying mother, "'Mother, I know you've always wished I'd take a gentler horse.' She opened her brown eyes, flashing in dark circled settings, squeezed my hand harder, and said, 'No, I've always loved you on the wild one." I will tell my mother not of horses. But of coyotes who are coydogs...and how I longed for two clear clear tranquil eyes as hers. Genetics are hard to overcome, so they say.
