And then some days you'll find yourself at the end of a long day that you worked harder than you realize to pull off, and you'll be so exhausted and happy and relieved that you'll burst into tears nearly the second you walk in the door. And you'll be crying because the day is over, and you'll be crying because you're still overjoyed by the supremely excellent news that came down fortuitously on your birthday, and you'll be crying because tomorrow you'll get up and start all over again and you're not quite ready yet. Because life is just that thick. Because you wouldn't have it any other way. Because you could use about five extra hours, or maybe five extra lives, right now, right this minute.
