this insomnia thing is getting out of control.

when i can't sleep i like to pass the time 
by writing messages
on the walls of our bathtub.

in the beginning,
cory and i had a cute
time traveler's wife-esque dialogue.
i'd write something he'd find before he left for work
and he'd write something i'd find when i woke up. 

i had a particularly rough night last week.
i tossed and turned.
i adjusted, i twisted, i plumped pillows,
i beat my high score on tetris.
nothing.

with nothing left to do,
i went to the bathroom.
i sat on the edge of the tub 
and looked at my blank canvas.
once i started,
i couldn't stop.
when cory got back from work that day,
i asked him what he thought about my "art."
he looked at me and said,
"brissa,
it went from being cute and sweet 
to 'a beautiful mind'. 
i opened up the shower curtain
and got a little scared.
i literally thought you were a crazy person."

moral of the story:
bathtub messages are only cute
when done in moderation
and don't include drawings titled, 
"sad running man."
