Okay, a little more than sometimes…
I sit at the computer doing nothing productive for hours at a time thinking about how many obligations I have and things I should be doing, but find a false sense of comfort from the stress in the clicky keys of my laptop when I type and in the words that others write.
I have never been able to be the productive person that so many of my friends are, and sometimes I even lie to myself to make myself feel better about how lazy I can be. Don’t get me wrong, I can be really productive, but right now, well… I just feel like sleeping forever. To get away for a bit, you know… I wish I could be a little more normal.
A lot. Like, they’re so much better than humans. They never say mean things to you. And they never choose someone else over you (except maybe food or sleep but that’s okay). They never make you cry (unless they scratch you but that’s different).
They depend on you. And they love you unconditionally.
Which is more than I can say for humans.
