Slumped against the pillows

Feeling

…Exhausted…
…Bored…
…Don’t mind me, go ahead…
…Melancholy…
…Wake me up the day after the day after…
…Mellow and relaxed…
…Waisted…
…Pretty fucked up…
…Peaceful…
…Alone, together at last…
…Too old for this…
Happy, tired and excited… (as seen through the humorous eye of Gil. You can check Gil’s funny, happy, tired and excited cartoons on his blog les dessins d’humeur de gil).
……..
(fill in the blanks)

I am the female version of this man, if only for a few minutes on any given day. Except bored – I’m never bored. And haven’t had a hangover in a long-long time.

      And then, I was captivated by his expression: what was he trying to convey? Was he tired-relieved-happy? Every time I look, something else comes to mind 🙂
