I’ll make a resolution to lose weight in September.
And reservations at a fancy restaurant
because we’re hungry and neither of us feel like cooking.
I hope that you bring me flowers
because you know I like them.
We’ll go to your mom’s because we haven’t seen her in awhile.
And I’ll be nice to our neighbors because they’re nice to us.
I’m not sure if Thanksgiving
is an appropriate thing to celebrate…
And, I struggle to understand why chicken eggs
must be dyed pastel colors –
In March, I want to decorate the outside of our house
and then go to perfect strangers and
ask them for candy.
And if we ever go back to Cancun,
it won’t be during a break.
