I understand that you haven’t been feeling well lately and this is the second time our immune system collapses in three months.
I want you to know I appreciate all your hard work and don’t blame you for our present state.
I am sorry if I don’t always give you everything you need and for keeping you up at night worrying about irrelevant things.
Sometimes I act like you embarrass me, but the truth is I am very proud of you and wouldn’t want to live inside any other body.
Sure, we have our differences of opinion…
You want to eat x number of cupcakes whereas I only want half… You want to lie in the sand whereas I force you to run on it…
But I try to make up for your sacrifices by supplying you with ample amounts of chocolate.
I received your list of requests you made me.
I don’t think I can get you more hugs but I will work on it.
I don’t know what to do about all the work hours and the commute.
To be honest, that has been very hard on me too.
Ok, ok, I will look for a job closer by, even if it pays less.
I agree that I need to spend more time playing guitar.
I am glad we are communicating with each other again, even if it is through a blog.
I know you liked the food in Italy more than the food here so I promise to take you back there some day.
It’s true- I stopped trying to make you look pretty months ago, but it’s not that I don’t care.
You look good enough without makeup.
Ok, ok, I’ll try a little harder.
But I’m not going to torture you with waxes or substances that smell like ammonia.
My dearest Body, I tend to have lapses in judgment and you usually pay the consequences.
Hang in there.
I need you.
Which is the same as you.
PS- I know your natural inclination is to try to get pregnant but I’m not sure that’s what either of us really wants.
