Svetlana + Belmont

When you said you were so proud of me for saving up all that money and taking you out to that hipster vegan restaurant in Silver Lake, I almost died of shame, the anguish almost killing me, but the truth is, I've never done anything to deserve your respect or appreciation (and have always been worried that you could see this written across my face like a smudged tribal tattoo).  The traces of my shamelessness are everywhere, but you are who I choose to be with.  I apologize for nothing, Svetlana.
