Can all my Mondays be like this, please?

Horrible weekend, HORRIBLE. (Not all, but the bad things were so bad they over shadowed everything else.)

This morning I wake up, antsy for the arrival of the BFF for an overnight visit while she travels the country, and I find the following email (summed up:)

"Dear Stoney,

Remember how we're the awesome agency you want repping you and we asked for your proposal to be sent to a certain agent's home address so she could cosy up on her sofa with it? She wants you to send her your entire book ASAP, and she wants you to re-write your proposal in our specific format, which all BODES WELL FOR YOU, because we're already thinking of marketing. We used the word "delighted" at one point at which you will pause and make dolphin noises. Now quit preening and get to work, nothing's set in stone.

Love, Awesome Agency"

And my coffee is now ready, and there's a breeze on my patio, and I'm going to sit in the sun and drink my brew and feel positive. YAY.

and I totally saw that email in my inbox and assumed it was a "Tchuch, QUIT TRYING TO WRITE, LOSER" and walked away for a moment. SO GLAD IT DIDN'T SAY THAT. Again: YAY.

Oh, BB, I am SO EXCITED FOR YOU!! I make dolphin noises and spin you around until you vomit up your coffee!

and I totally saw that email in my inbox and assumed it was a "Tchuch, QUIT TRYING TO WRITE, LOSER" and walked away for a moment.

Piffle! I KNEW you could do it! Did I not tell you you could? *BELIEVES*

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
