we're joining the gym

it's so important to be nice, but how can i persuade you?

funny is good, and charming is swell, but kindness....

and why is it that we only remember when it's necessary to do so? we only remember when it is niceness from another, compassion from him or her or them, that saves us. saves me. why is it so hard to keep a worldly view?

others do it very well, consistently.

but i swear. please listen. you need to be kind to her. to him. to them. and i'm not talking about that frosting kind of niceness. be nice all the time, yes. but i mean the kind that makes your eyes meet. that invokes that flicker--subtle; careful you don't miss it--of reminiscing. a smile that only curls the corner of your mouth, because the rest of your energy has gone to warming your belly.

you don't need to cry and this moment doesn't need to be profound. i'm talking the hollywood shit, but in a realistic application. it is there, sometimes. pay attention.

get up. let's talk.
thank you.
