Put My "Heart In A Box" Please
Enter one crummy Saturday morning. I was feeling down on myself. Which isn't always. There are up days and down days, and this was a down. Saturdays are usually myself and another manager, Mr. Johnson. I proceeded to lay on him my woes.
"I wish I could take my feelings out for just a moment and see what that would feel like. I feel so much all the time, it would be nice to have a break from my emotions."
Emma lives in LA. Emma has relationship issues. A gay BFF who talks her out of her despair. Emma wants to not feel anymore.
Sound like someone you know? I about died.
"If the man with no name can't understand what a fucking treasure you are, then he's just not even worth it in the first place."
THAT is page 14.
I about lost it.
Funny thing is, all of these guys I've dated, I've made up names for. Number One. Gay Chris. Insta Greg. Irish Guy. I began reading in a diner in Silver Lake. But really wanted to finish it in my favorite LA spot Griffith Observatory.
I read it again straight away! Thank you OJ and thank you Kelly.
