Listen to: Knobby Knees by Oats

I asked about the scar on your shoulder 
You said, “Life could get stupid sometimes.” 
And I knew what you meant 
& you continued to press your head into mine. 

You held me close to your body 
so we left the party and I fell more 
with each glimpse I caught of your blue eyes 
in the streetlight that looked like moonlight. 

I don’t know you but I know I like you 
& I don’t know you but I know I’d like to. 

We laid close all night in your bedroom 
and fell asleep as the sun came up, 
But we didn’t sleep for more than a few hours 
because the birds outside your windows they woke us up. 

I’d fall asleep every couple of minutes 
surprised when I awoke 
to your hands tracing the shape of my bones, 
I’d gotten so used to waking up alone. 

I don’t know know you but I know I like you 
& I don’t know know you but I know I’d like to.

HAM and Knobby Knees!

So at first I thought this photo was awful because I feel like my legs look like massive hams! My shorts do this things that drives me BONKERS where they work their way up my legs and into my crotch ALL DAY LONG and it’s so uncomfortable and it ALWAYS looks weird when I try to pull them down, like I have some sort of problem with refraining from touching myself in public. UGH. And this happens with almost all my shorts so I suspect this is something that just happens with ham-thighs. 

BUT while my thighs are sometimes the bane of my existence, I LOVE my knees!! They are officially my favorite part of my body these days! Like a year ago I practically didn’t have knees! Have you ever realized that knees with excess fat look like baby faces? It’s totally a thing! Well I am proud to say I no longer have baby-face knees! They’re all awkward and boney an they poke out like the weird, spherical, floating bone that they are! <3

So now I love this photo. Because it shows my fabulous knees :)
