conversant

Listening to yourself is hard.

My body is doing its best to communicate with me, but there’s so much external input and stimulation that I often don’t listen well. Our conversations aren’t always the most productive…

“You can stop eating now, there’s more than enough food in here already.” But there’s more noodles and sauce and the bread’s still warm…

“We’re sweating and anxious again, why do we keep doing this?” The money is great and they gave me a title…

“Hey, let’s go for a walk, our muscles haven’t been used enough today.” I just got here though, I deserve a little break…

“Let’s not do that again, remember how we felt last time, and literally every other time?” Well, today is today and I know my limits.

“We should just sit here and listen to things. The sun is warm and feels good on our skin.” But this Wikipedia article on the history of fireworks, stock’s down, and what Trump did today…

“It’s nice, right? You can have more of this feeling any time you want, just repeat the same stimuli.” But Walmart has it in a bottle now for only 99¢!

Yeah, not easy.
