John and Anthony, part two....

One of the things that makes John tolerable company despite everything is that he's clearly comfortable in his own skin. He worries from time to time but that never really lasts for long. He may be a smug jerk but since he's generally contented with his surroundings, he doesn't do as much damage as the worrywarts that surround him. Anthony, on the other hand, is a physically and emotionally awkward bundle of anxieties and discontent. He puts on a brave face that fools the Pattersons but he lives a life of quiet desperation and anxieties he cannot banish from his thoughts. The only answer he's come up with to the question of how to make his deep-seated feelings of inadequacy is to have Liz Patterson in his life. The sad fool doesn't realize that she wants to be with him for the same reason. They won't be the John and Elly of the future because they'll spend the rest of their lives feeling ill-at-ease with each other. Where John and Elly's appetites are easily sated, their hungers will never go away.
