Pancakes

So I was, funnily enough, feeling especially grateful tonight. Steve was going to come over for a date, and as I was in the shower I was recollecting the day I took a temporary vow to pancakes. It was just about six years ago- my last semester of college. One evening I was feeling all kinds of bummer wishing for a better life inside myself. That particular June evening I left the house to try and leave my thoughts too- went for a run in the rain just before midnight. I came back home feeling the same, but more tired and with mud on me. Made myself a batch of pancakes. Ate 'em. Oh delicious pancakes. I made another batch. Ate 'em. And I said to myself, "These pancakes are the best thing I've got going. I am just going to eat pancakes until I find something better in life." And I'ma tell you what... I ate a lot of pancakes!

Thank you, Michael. I miss you too! Last time you were here with us I felt my heart turn warm in my chest, and I often recall the feeling hoping to feel it again.
