On Knowing Better and Letting Things Go

Beautiful and protected by the moon, I don't want her to end up as arm-decor for a rich. Some clever, happy rich, maybe that Rich, who loves boating and wine, wears yellow golf shirts, and has a parakeet named Alphonsus who he calls Baby. He says "Yes" instead of "Yeah, man." Sometimes he says "Affirmative."

Even if things get worse, I will not stoop to sabotage. She's her own woman, and she'll find out things. To watch this progress in the total absence of progress without taking action is a variety of tortures. But at least it's variety. My life is suddenly spicy.

Spicy can be a good thing.
Rich is a tool, though. Won't take her long to figure it out!

Stoop to sabotage! Stoop to sabotage! Feed his parakeet dynamite, then find out who's laughing. Polly want a... stick of dynamite? Mwa ha ha.

The drama that ensues when the one who is supposed to be with you chooses another are what any good midsummer's night is all about.

How does the moon protect her?
