This was good. I’m not scoring, am applauding. Thank you.
I can’t love without smothering either. You ever read about the oreo test for kids to assess resilience? I’m the kid who waits the entire experiment until the experimenter returns with my reward. He sits down, gets ready to congratulate me and then I reach for the oreo whilst my parents scream “Nooooo!” from behind the one-way glass! I eat the cookie in slow mo!
I had no idea what the test was for! I’m deaf!
