  • treat yourself to a nice dinner
  • enjoy a big glass of wine
  • listen to your favorite song
  • dance like nobody’s watching
  • realize your neighbor across the street is watching
  • quickly shut the blinds and put your clothes back on
  • figure the damage is done so you might as well leave your pants off
  • pour another glass of wine

  • pop into a nearby liquor store for a fresh bottle of wine
  • see that a box is not only cheaper per ounce but has a handle to carry it with

  • finally see the bus

  • decide that no, you’re not gonna cry
  • stand up on your cot and begin loudly singing “Not Gon’ Cry” by Mary J. Blige, from the Waiting To Exhale soundtrack
