show-stopping song and dance spectacular
Wednesday, August 17, 2005

may i indulge myself in some...?

Oh, thank you, deah, you're so charming.

I'm flattered.

You really think that?

Well, I wouldn't put it quite that way...

What, this old thing? Oh, it's just something I threw on. No really, it is. I slept in this t-shirt and jeans last night.

"I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor is running through my head. If my life were a sitcom, the floors and walls of the library would suddenly be illuminated by a disco ball as I would sing in a show-stopping song and dance spectacular.

I sit and watch bad movies on TV with Robin, both of us immobilized by pain except hers is so much worse than mine that it's impossible for me to comprehend it, and yet we both sit there and laugh.


He stands up this morning in the basement, looking down at his shoes with both his hands in his pockets and even though he's not looking up, I can tell he's smiling, and I love him because the glimpses I get are so strong.
