"post coitum omne animal triste" (all animals are melancholy after intercourse), says St. Augustine. Apparently, it's more complicated than that. Thanks, Patry.

Waiting? For me?!?!? I am so flattered.

It's definitely trademark you. It is simple, yet says so much. It is definitely tactile . . . The implied, unstated heat from your "activity," contrasted with the (ostensibly) cold draft coming from an open window. Hot and cold. All at once.

(BTW, did you ever consider closing the window? Just a thought.)

Anon: after--maybe, before--other considerations, during--no way, man!
