My two best friends are germophobes
Who have a hard time saying no
When I was diagnosed with strept throat
One of them left town
I didn’t notice the correlation
Until he admitted that he did it to bow out
“You were super needy and depressed, which I find really appealing. But then, when I found out you were contagious..”
The other one also had her doubts.
I said “I’ve been out all day running errands.
I’m back on my feet, I promise.”
She said, “Yeah, you have a real problem with over and under estimation.
I don’t trust your judgement.”
But she manufactured a sick mask for me out of her medicine cabinet
We didn’t hug, but we started walking
Side by side
then she granted me reanimation
She made me laugh and sing and sigh
