I’d lock myself in my room preparing for like a week. Possibly a month.

Pride isn’t for another month, but about 3 or 4 weeks ago we got sandwiches for lunch in the village and the sandwich guy handed me the smaller of the two with a wink and said “Pride’s coming up!”.

Pride prep basically begins the morning after you cry yourself to sleep on Valentine’s Day :P
