    Read The Fixer 107 The FixerDisplacement activity is when you do stuff to avoid doing other stuff so like instead of reviewing The Fixer I have been playing scrabble with daughter we agree that ex is an allowable word and switching the tv aimlessly on to find a drama in which they are just about to cut off John Paul Getty’s ear to prove to the father they have got the kid I did not care to see that and then I lectured the two cats on the importance
