Found this dialogue between Yossarian and a shrink in Catch-22. Because I’m quite an ass myself, I replaced the word “fish” with “baby” in my head as I re-read it.
“What does the fish remind you of?”
“And what do the other fish remind you of?”
“Do you like the fish? Do you have any hostile or aggressive emotions toward it?”
“No, not at all. In fact, I rather like the fish.”
“Then you do like the fish.”
