Are you okay?
What are you doing?
Laying on the floor.
How is that good?
You got out of bed today!
So I accomplished something.
I guess this means you haven’t showered or brushed your teeth.
That requires energy I don’t have.
Sorry I made you cry, I didn’t mean to push you. Work at your own pace. Do you want me to come over?
No, I want to wallow alone.
Steph, how can you stand talking to me?
I have been there.
I can’t even stand myself right now.
One day at a time. Right now it feels like this will last forever, but it won’t.
Was I this kind when your heart was broken?
Yes, you were.
You held it together better.
Nah, time must have clouded your perspective, I was a mess.
All I do is…
Awe Liz I am coming over.
No it is bad enough you have to hear me cry, but seeing it, it isn’t pretty.
I will pick up some medicine and chocolate.
They make medicine for broken hearts?
Yes, it’s called alcohol.
I can’t, I am a mess.
I am still coming over.
Because you sound sick.
No, you are congested from crying so hard.
See, a mess.
Good, I’ll join you. I haven’t been a hot mess in months.
Great, two hot messes.
Okay stop making me laugh it is too painful.
I will grab the chocolate and the sappy movies.
Don’t forget the medicine.
I didn’t think you wanted medicine.
Of course I need something to combat your cheerfulness.
That’s why we’re friends Liz.
I am not showering.
Okay and your teeth?
I’ll bring an air freshener.
It won’t help. You should just stay home.
I am on my way.
Steph, remember floral scents give me a headache? Steph? Great, she is going to bring that awful wild rose spray!
