Yes. It’s fucking on.
You’re on Jack. Usual spot?
Alright, someone take me out, I’m over my routine. I wanna play.
Karaoke. You. Me. Let’s go.
Charlotte’s favorite band of all time is The Format. After getting her driver’s license she took her car, a 1990 Volkswagon Beetle (which she still drives to this very day), on a roadtrip up to Dublin with a friend to see The Format play. She marks that day as one of the top three days in her whole life. Conversely, the day The Format broke up happens to be the second worst day of her life.
The Format - The Compromise
I found some old photos of me from Uni and I - I can’t believe I was let out of the house with that haircut.
Take all those irrational fears and throw them away. I love you, Charlotte. And no matter what happens in the future, I will be there for you and the baby. Now come here and cuddle with me or whatever.
Okay. I can do this. We can do this. I’m in love with you and we’ll make this work and I feel so, so much better. We’re okay.
Okay, let’s cuddle.
Can we agree to cross that bridge if and when we get there? I am certain that our child will be happy, healthy, and have a wonderful bully-free childhood. Don’t worry about something that hasn’t happened yet and may never happen.
Okay. Yeah. Okay. I - I’m being completely and totally irrational. I feel - I feel so much better now that I - you know, vomited irrational fears out all at once. But - I - I’m still scared that I’m not - you know - worth spending the rest of your life with… in any capacity… like if we decide to get married or if we just mutually raise a kid together.
It matters to me.
Charlotte Moore, you are not forcin’ me into anythin’. I want t’ be here for you and the baby. In five years, we’ll have either a mini me or a mini you, and they’ll be startin’ school, and they’ll be friends with Alfie and Allie… Lottie, it’s goin’ t’ be fine.
That’s simultaneously the most wonderful and horrifying thing I’ve ever heard. What if - what if he - or she - is sick like I was as a baby? What if he or she is sick like I was as a kid too? I was a sick kid you know - I was always home sick from school or I always managed to fall and hurt myself. I was bullied in school too what if - what if our baby is too? I mean - I was bullied because of my Mom and - and I’m not my mom so there’s that but wha- I’m being crazy. I’m crazy. Absolutely crazy.
