i'm sort of grateful for them
because it means i get to do silly things
like catch up on sitcoms
and unlock new levels of where's my water.
and i have a wonderful boyfriend
who wakes up to my
"oh-crap-baby-i'm-sick-i-have-to-miss-school-today-this-sucks" text messages
(at 6:30 am...)
and takes a cab to my house (yes... city boy still can't drive...)
bright and early
and suggests we watch back to the future (!)
while he plays with my hair,
pulls funny faces for me,
makes me some tea,
and then goes up to try to finish painting my room.
i probably heard "ooh, poor baby" about seventy times today.
so, thanks Old Mr. Headache and Stomachache, Jr...
there certainly are perks to having you around.
