The Last Booty Call (Neil)

Probably you need a laugh today. Personally, I don't know if I can muster it. There's a dull throbbing in my head, not unlike a hangover. My shoulders are in a permanent slump. My heart hurts like after a fresh break-up though for once it's not because of a break-up.

Today my boyfriend kissed me good morning and brought me coffee in bed with just the right amount of cream. Last night he brought me flowers and Champagne and made homemade noodles, comfort food. Later in the week we have plans for a bike ride down the Greenbelt, by the river. There is sun on the forecast. Today, tomorrow, all the days going forward, I need to remember I'm safe. I'm loved. I have a good family. I have wonderful friends. A job I like. Everything is going to be okay.

In the meantime, I'll try to laugh. I recommend you listen to the Couples Skate episode The Last Booty Call over at iTunes.
