How are you? Fine? Us too. Always fine. If fine is in fact an acronym, such as…
Fucking Insane Not Eating
This is a bad one, when the voices in your head are really drowning out any common sense… maybe it’s because you are on a pre-Christmas diet and are only eating broccoli. Which makes you unpredictable and totally mad.
Freaked-out Ill Neurotic Emotional
Fantastic Irreplaceable Needed Enough
You are enough. Good enough. More than enough. Hell, you are essential. These fine days don’t happen often but when they do grab every opportunity, return every phone call, talk to anyone you can because, you are on fire.
