Answers to questions you didn’t ask
What costume shall the poor girl wear to all tomorrow’s parties?
A pair of second hand black River Island heels, thick black tights with gold zig zags woven through them in a pattern, an elasticated black knee-length skirt and a black vest top with an elaborate butterfly pattern taking up most of the front. This will be accessorized with a knowingly juxtaposed combination of a pair of fairy wings and a set of red plastic devil horns you might find in any joke shop or party store.
What’s love got to do with it?
A non-exhaustive list of some of the things that have got to do with it:
This dim light
Something someone said once about seizing the moment
An impending catastrophe
A warm bed
A decent smile
The inability to say no
The film The Wedding Singer
An awkward pause in conversation
A fleeting glimpse of genuine happiness
But not love. Love, it turns out, has got nothing to do with it.
