We laugh at the idea of your thought of perfection as you appear before us so disheveled. There’s no intent to tease you for the lisp that falls from your tongue and makes you swallow your own words. We feel guilt for our laughter as your purple boxers with pink polka dots peak through your unzipped plaid flowers khakis. The aqua green tie wrapped around your neck appears as if meant for a clown. Did you lose your comb today? Your hair looks like a birds nest, which is so unlike the perfect man we know you’re obsessed with trying to be be. It appears to us that you most likely just woke up on the wrong side of today.
