I have to say… I have fantastic taste in the people I love.
Even I wasn’t expecting that to come out of my mouth, not today for sure.
But I’m going to stand behind it. So there are a lot of flaws, collectively. I mean, a lot of stuff that I wouldn’t throw a parade over, more tears than I would choose if given an option, things that I could legitimately slap a mofo over. But I’m interested in point of origin for the outcomes. Tears shed as a result of behavior rooted in malice or cowardace or laziness, well those are a different kind of tear.
Categorically, the people I love do dumb shit. But the dumb shit they do is categorically rooted in how badly they want to get it right. If I end up crying over someone wanting really badly to do the right thing and getting really lost in how to pull that off… well, okay.
