You just made it all so much worse. How can you tease me like you do, showing up looking like that? Just when I thought I’d reigned myself back in, too. Oof.
My motivation is a secret, but maybe not-so-secret to you. Perhaps you can tell that my body breathes a sigh of relief when you walk into view. I wanna be ready, I wanna look good.

I think of a Maybe Someday, and it looks like late spring. Sunny and warm enough but not too hot. A breeze that you can’t even notice, but that keeps you comfortable. Everything is easy like that.
