Shame on me for wanting to eat my cake and have it, too. For wanting to submerge and still breathe.
Well, really, there's no shame in wanting. Only in action. Or inaction.
You can't have everything, ldy. Sometimes you have to choose.
And the choices aren't always obvious, and they aren't often easy.
You have chosen... wisely.
But wisdom doesn't necessarily bring joy, does it.
That I'm paying the lesser of two prices is of little consolation right now.
