Good News

It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten good news. A long while. A very long while. I’m not talking about good news that happens for other people, that happens a lot and I’m grateful for that.

But I’m talking about good news for me.

You know the kind. Changes your whole day. It doesn’t even have to mean anything directly but it also changes your standing.

Today I woke up feeling drunk. This doubly sucks since I didn’t any alcohol or medication to cause such an effect. I could barely move. I was late for work.

Then the good news came. It’s been a happy day since.

No, I can’t tell you the good news. Not till it’s real on a public forum.

But it’s still good.

Ivy Walker: When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable. Why can you not say what is in your head?
Lucius Hunt: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly? What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night.
