he's got jokes

Friday, November 22

I've been talking with a boy. We won't talk about how we met because it's stupid and not worthy of our now awesome friendship. But we talk a lot. And it brightens my day. Here's why.

We were talking about depression. Not in a serious way. In a "let's discuss this thing because it's midnight and we are talking about dark and lovely things." And the fact that sometimes a text from a near stranger can make your day.

I said.

"Misery loves company."

He said.

"I'm gonna name my daughter Misery and she's going to be awesome. Whenever we have people over I'll have her entertain them. Then company will love misery."

He's got jokes, everybody. He's got jokes.

    I love this post :)

  2. haha this is cute and lovely...he's funny....and I love those friends with whom you can talk about anything without judgments or critiques... those are the best debatable conversations I've had... depression, death, life, religion, love, music... what a great midnight talk that must have been.


Thank you for your words; they light a fire in my heart. You are lovely.
