Cheap-Thrill

4

Western Illinois to me smells like generic industrial cleaning products and cheap plastic thrills. I went to college 50 miles from here over ten years ago and I can still remember the smell of the dorms after a good clean and a picture I took of my desk with all the tchotchkes, snacks and boxes of hair dye from late-night Walgreens runs.

Archer’s been thriving off of attention from the college students I’m visiting, and I owe thanks to them for keeping him occupied yesterday and this morning. Without them he’d have been absolutely bored out of his mind.

We’re driving back home today, and then on Thursday morning I’ll drop him off at his favorite daycare/boarding for a weeklong vacation while we’re in Rome (for a very long overdue and much needed break).

@mrdropoff Maybe in an ideal, fantasy world, Robert wouldn’t even get tempted to kiss Rebecca back. But this is real life and everyone in a relationship at some point has to face the lure of temptation bc it’s in human nature to be tempted! It’s a fact! And I’m sorry but people that say they haven’t ever been tempted even for just a split second is lying! Especially when you have someone attractive like Rebecca throwing themselves at you!

However, it’s what people do about that temptation that shows their true character - whether they actually give into a fleeting temptation or not! And in this case Robert doesn’t give into temptation bc his love for Aaron is enough! Robert doesn’t want to screw up what he’s got with Aaron over a cheap, meaningless thrill like he would undoubtedly have done in the past!

And that right there shows Robert’s character growth and how Aaron really IS enough bc Robert doesn’t NEED to cheat to fill some void! He’s the bigger person and walks away. For once Robert actually thinks about the consequences of his actions instead of acting before thinking, something he’s not prone to do - at least not in the past! And that shows how important Aaron is to Robert and how much he loves him!

Sia - The Greatest

“Famously hairy pop star Sia has released a stunning new single which pays tribute to the victims of June’s tragic shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

The 40-year-old Australian singer, who was previously filmed breaking down on stage as she dedicated her hit ‘Titanium’ to the 49 LGBT people and allies who lost their lives in the massacre, unveiled new single ‘The Greatest’ today (September 6), along with a stunning video which once again stars 13-year-old dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler.

Ziegler, who previously appeared in Sia’s videos for ‘Chandelier’, ‘Elastic Heart’, ‘Big Girls Cry’ and ‘Cheap Thrills’, sports rainbows on her face as she delivers her most emotional performance yet in the visual, which features 49 young dancers who end their routine with the haunting image of a sea of bodies on the floor, along with the message ‘#WeAreYourChildren’.” (source)
