Terrible Things

  1. Hugging men who wear terrible cologne and wearing it all day
  2. Feeling like you have to impress people you don't even like
  3. Singing along to a song with a guy you like but only knowing the words because your ex boyfriend loved that band
  4. Hearing your neighbor sneeze from your own bedroom
  5. This stupid cough that you gave me and how it's forcing me to be awake, thinking about you
  6. Malls. How they somehow make you feel fat but also hungry for 2,000 calories of orange chicken at the same time.
  7. When you see the second cockroach. And you think ... So much for an "isolated incident"
  8. Vertical blinds and how they feel so temporary like this isn't your home. This is a lonely stopover. And they'll be here for the Next person.
  9. When you get up from the table to go to the bathroom and you have to wonder what they're saying about you.
  10. Having great sex and eating sugar cookies for a week and then getting a yeast infection and somehow feeling like it's your punishment for being content
  11. Dial-ins, dentist appointments, and things that attach you to a schedule but are probably good for you so you should do them
