Jeanetics and LBK

We've all been there. You wake up early in the morning, you don't really want to wake up but you have to. You leave the bed in a major effort of willpower for which you will reward yourself later on with sugary treats if you're poor or cocaine if you're not.

They belonged to LBK.

We shared quite a few moments, and when I last saw her, her plane took off before mine, so she woke up before I did, she packed her bags before I did, and she left our room before I did.

I slept in that day, I never really liked good byes of any kind.

After packing my own bags, I had one last look at our former room and, hanging on a bedpost, I found a pair of jeans that were not mine. When, later on I told her about it, she said oh! how could I forget? She mentioned this was her favourite pair so I offered to mail it, and that alternative became more and more complicated.

In the end, it was understood I was going to deliver them, maybe, one day, as that was cheapest and safest way to preserve their magic.

Quite a few months (though not years, yet) have passed since, and we don’t talk often, for we don’t have a relationship. At least, that’s what we agreed on. I don’t like long distance relationships and neither does she. But at one point I told her I lied about something and she nearly jumped out of the Skype frame. We haven’t Skyped much since either, but when we do, she usually has a new haircut.

These jeans are made for flying
