I just saw Hallmark’s Maxine at Friendly’s!
"If marriage and couples are supposed to be this magic bullet, and your relationship is the thing that is supposed to define and make the world for you, that’s putting an enormous amount of pressure on that relationship."
This is Oliver. He arrived in January of 2012 and is slowly gaining acceptance….from Jack. Stella despises him. (mostly because he doesn’t seem to pick up on social cues like hissing and slapping.) Oliver has cerebellar hypoplasia which makes him a little stumbly, but he gets around fine and isn’t in any pain. He doesn’t realize he’s different and is therefore perplexed by Stella’s hostility.
