this is the part where ...
















this is the part where i go it alone.
this is the part where i sit in cafes
while my friend waits tables
and i drink hot toddys
for my perpetual sore throat.
i look at a stranger's pictures of a recent trip to india
and i remember my own adventures
and the woman i once was ...
who i will be again.
this is the part where i go to the gym
and hit punching bags
until i re-sprain my wrists.
this is the part where i take the nubian's red velvet cupcakes
(for he is no longer a god)
and i disperse them to the people i love
who have always stuck by me.

You know it, girl. At least you have a sweet, cuddly consolation for the weekend. But call me if you need milk or anything!

Aw Michelle, having just caught up let me say I am sorry. :(

Be careful with those cupcakes, they're dangerously delicious!
