The Monday Catchup
Welcome to winter. To ignore my craggy, chapped lips and the bitter cold that kisses them when walking from class to class, I imagine I’m running a marathon in a sweat suit and think about how I would give anything to feel cool—a tactic that can make me feel better for up to a second. Now I try to imagine a situation in which I would feel happy and excited to be back in class after winter break. The only situation that comes to mind is: having a personal masseuse in each of my classes everyday. This is a pipe dream. However, if you happen to
A) be in one of my classes and
B) consider yourself a masseuse of sorts,
do not hesitate to contact me. I enjoy the tender touch. Well, actually I have a lot of knots in my back because thats where I store all my stress I guess so if you don’t mind airing on the side of muscle ripping with your touch then we are 100% good. Anyway, here’s what you said about break.
“I took a nice soak.”
“I caught on on much needed sleep.”
Very simple, Kenyon. I like it. If you want to ignore the cold like I do, go ahead. You can also ignore the cold by doing these things.
