So, sort of an amusing discussion happened this morning in my SPAN group. One of my admins said that having gone to the dentist proved to be more enjoyable than actually hanging out with her toxic narcissist

That sparked her idea of a blog post entitled "Things I'd Rather Do Than Hang Out With a Narcissist," which is here - and it also led me to create this video (remainder of post is below the video).
