Tell her I really liked this blog post.

- Probably won’t happen so all that time she’d spend stressing about me doing something stupid would be for nothing? check.
Why pull a single thread out of your shirt and let it hang there? Just because you want to remind yourself to get a new shirt some day? Just because you like doing stuff? What does that even mean? Stop being so stupid!
