something go wrong, oh say, like your upstairs neighbor leaves
his sink stopped up and running after he has left the house,
and you suddenly find it raining in your spare bedroom, the
ceiling looking like it's going to burst at any moment, just
call me. I'll break in to his apartment through a back window,
shut the water off, unplug the sink, mop up the floor and
give you plenty of buckets to catch the deluge, as well as
help you move your furniture out of harms way.
say you have something on your chest at 6 am that just has
to get off, just call, I'll answer and listen, though I may
not be very talkative. I'll even answer two days in a row,
during a huge festival, on less than 4 hours of sleep. Because
I care and am always here for you. Regardless of if we have
talked in a long while or not.
you need a painting, or a drawing, or a song, or a walk in
the woods looking for spiders, I'm your gal. Should you find
yourself needing a bedtime story at 11pm on a Tuesday when
nothing has gone right, I have just the book.
should you need me, just call.
