And when you see us again, we will be perfect. We will have done yoga everyday, smoked less and been fully hydrated. We will have flossed our teeth just before bed, had good thoughts, expanded the use of our brain space by three percent and called our mother regularly.

He would be like that, and I would be like this. I would stay like this. She would still be there. He would be over here. I would be gone and they would all be watching.

One would be underneath and five would be above with two over to the side, busy with something else. Eventually, he would leave and we would manage just fine.
