I am so regular, I sleep at 7.30 pm every evening and not a minute later. I never miss my pre-scheduled siestas.
I text all my friends in the morning to ask how they slept, and every night to remind them to rest easy. In fact, a week hardly ever passes by without me seeing them. I call home every other day.
I never forget to treat myself to delicious snacks all through the day.
I wear this dress that accentuates my curves and ends 2/3rd of my ankles and a burgundy on my lips to match. I flip my voluminous hair back every half an hour because I’m going out on a date today, can’t wait, he’s perfect in everywhere.
“Nice dress,” he says
I look down at my clammy hands and manage a vague smile
“I only wear red when I’m indifferent”
“You always wear red,” he points out
My quivering lips broadened into a grin.
“It must desaturate you to always wear a mask that reflects only what every other person wants to see”
I looked down to my glazed glass, watching my merlot swivel back and forth due to the wind drifting towards us
“You know,” I managed, “Just living”.
