cOuNtiNg on tiMe

spoke to Best Friend jus now. its her birfdayyyyy. and i knew she wouldn't be having the most spectacular day considering all things said and suffered over the last year. marriage and divorce and dissappointments and tears and fears. and society. no matter how we try to diffuse the judgements prevail. anywayz, i plan on partying all weekend to rid the blues so to speak. we could both do with some major unwinding. jus gotta finish the painting i;m making for her b4 i see her. which is tomorrow. me thinks she might just like it. and nothing like a weekend of fun shopping pampering and feel good stuff to get some good girl-time together!

and all that while forgetting the scars that time has branded so lavishly on us.
