A little drunk at dawn, reminding herself of where she is takes longer than she thinks it should, like the Air Port is still searching for your preferred wireless network.

When she runs into him sometimes she has to think strategically about what’s worth revealing like do today’s inappropriate internet searches warrant clearing the browsing data including the cookies so that I have to re-enter all of my logins and passwords or should I just delete the day’s history & assume no one will be using my laptop?

How did it get to be that she was listing with no clear loyalty like I use Google Chrome for most things but I still toggle back to Firefox to watch Netflix VOD—?
