Borrowed words

If you meet somebody and they love you when you are your true, awful, not-ready-yet, boring, not cool enough, not handsome enough, not pretty enough, too fat, too poor self? And if you love them back so much it makes you calm? And they have flaws and you don't mind a single one of them?

That means you get yourself to the church and you pull one of those priests out of bed and you have him cast one of those wedding spells on you.

I'd be up for some revowing after reading this. This is it in a nutshell. Plus good cooking and a neck-kissing or ass-pinching every now and again.

We all forget, from time to time. Wallowing a little usually gives me the "Really? You're complaining when you have all this?" push, so I consider it therapeutic.

Ive been hoping all is well with you and yours.
