Okay, today I feel shitty in every single way ever known to man. Someone please give me something to make my day, I’m not even joking
I don’t know if anyone else has these feelings and thoughts, but whenever I go and see a film, I always crave to just live. I find myself loving the way my shoes sound on the pavement, or loving the way a car changes gears, or even the way tea or coffee is made. In fact, I wake up every day looking forward to tiny things like this. I don’t really know what I’m trying to say in this paragraph, but I guess I’m trying to tell you that appreciating the tiniest, most miniscule things in your day can actually make you adore life. Really.
"Hello? Can I speak to — to Michael?
Oh hey, how you doin?
Uh, I feel kinda silly doin’ this,
But um, this is the waitress from the coffee house on 39th and Lennox
You know, the one with the braids?
Yeah, well I see you on Wednesdays all the time
You come in every Wednesday on your lunch break, I think
And you always order the special, with the hot chocolate
And my manager be tripping and stuff
Talking bout we gotta use water
But I always use some milk and cream for you
Cause I think you’re kinda sweet.
Anyway you always got on some fly blue suit
‘n your cufflinks are shining all bright
So, whatchu do? Oh, word? Yeah, that’s interesting
Look man, I mean I don’t wanna waste your time but
I know girls don’t usually do this,
But I was wondering if maybe we could get together
Outside the restaurant one day
Cause I do look a lot different outside my work clothes
I mean we could just go across the street to the park right here
Wait, hold up, my cell phone’s breakin up, hold up
Can you hear me now? Yeah
So, what day did you say?
Oh yeah, Thursday’s perfect, man…"
