  • We were deep in the hole. So deep that we didn’t know how we’d ever get out. So deep that it was hard to see the light of day.

  • “a spider in your hair.” She said, then brushed it away. “Your confession, while unusual, is not the weirdest I’ve heard today. Did you know Kurt from account thinks he’s a frog?” I had never been so relieved to hear such a strange fact. It appears I had found acceptance at last.
