I know you’re overwhelmed with prayers for weight loss from every Tom, Dick and Harriet but if you could find it in your schedule to squeeze in a couple New Year’s wishes from me I’d be incredibly thankful. You see, this year I’d like to request delightful breezes as opposed to large gusts of wind that knock me on my ass and I’d be ever so grateful for endless cups of perfect tea that fill me with a sense of warmth and belonging as I try to make my way along this crunchy little path I’ve chosen for myself. And while you’re at it can you arrange for every single last bone and limb and smile that belong to my loved ones to be kept perfectly safe and unharmed? That would be grand, as would your everlasting guidance when it comes to the new remote that entered my homestead recently and the upsurge in moths that seem to be into practicing swarm routines in my living room. And speaking of patience and bravery, could you extend extra servings of those to me?—along with a steadfast devotion to my own clunky heart that I know will benefit from any sort of lucky balm you have to massage it with. But just say you’re too busy and you can’t find time to fulfill all of my 2014 wishes, could you just make sure that I am able to open up to the world more as opposed to closing down because of it. I know it’s a lot to ask but I promise if I am able to continue to expand instead of contract I’ll do my best to make the planet a better place, thank you for your time you may be seated amen.
It Never Hurts To Ask,
Ramona the Rigorous Requester
