My first thought was the video for Chris Brown’s “Undecided,” which got me thinking about domestic violence. Then, the sample from Shanice’s “I Love Your Smile” Scott Storch used in the beat made me think of an amazing smile I haven’t seen for far too long because I was undecided for far too long. Then, I got lost. Then, I remembered my joke about carnies being the most famous people on Epatrus with the best dental plans in Norman Normalson & The Normals. All that somehow got me here.
“I love your smile.” She blushed and giggled and gave him a little shoulder bump. “I’ve missed you. It’s been far too long.”
“Remember that next time you’re undecided.”
“I am completely decided. You’re all I want. You’re all I need.”
“Good. Let’s go on the Ferris Wheel.”
“I will never understand your affinity for the Ferris Wheel.”
“It’s romantic. We can snuggle up in the pod and look out over all the lights.”
“That’s half the appeal. Sometimes you have to take things slow.”
“Whatever you say.”
“You goin’ up alone, sir?”
“Uh… Yeah, it’s just me.”
