Had a thought just now.
I have a friend who told me that if anyone got me, then they’ve won themselves a prize. I didn’t ask if that meant anything good, or if it was a compliment in the first place.
From the way I look at it, if I were only the prize, I would be the big teddy hanging by the stall, that prize that everyone wants to have.
But I don’t want to be the bear. Instead, I want to be the one whose guy won the bear for. I want to be the one who stands by the side, watching him winning the bear for me.
And not the prize, that stood by the side, hanging alone.
