It’s a commonly-held belief that, when beginning to try leaving an indignant relative, to be is to even like something furthermore than that. Every time. So there’s this thing where people never think one thing but they do, and then it’s like “I never even said whatever” and everything is backwards. I think what you really want to do is believe in yourself so you can really push hard and actualise safely. Then, emboldened, to go forward into a partly-digested tomorrow.
We never said anything more than what we thought, but we never thought anything more than what we heard. Day in, day out.
I gave you a locket but I left the frame blank because I wasn’t sure what picture you wanted in there and I thought you might like to choose but then you dropped it down the back of the drawer and we couldn’t get it out for a while and by the time I did you’d already gone.
And words fly around like they’re carrying something but really they’re just vibrations in the air. I can never get a decent signal in the kitchen. You always said we should change providers but we never did and I’m still with them but it’s not such a bad deal because they’re at least 10% cheaper than the others and I got a free modem. In times like these, it’s important to recognise good value and align with a brand you feel you can trust.
Trust is like this thing where it’s hard to say when we last knew when to say how being in touch with it is better than not but somehow not also but even babies
