Dear Insecure Voice In My Head,
Why are you such a nag? What, exactly, is your problem? Why must you plague me so?
Tell me true, what’s not to love?
The gull lace pattern?
Certainly not the buttons, or the charming model.
In short, Insecure Voice In My Head, please observe this delighted smile…
and vacate the premises. My head is quite noisy enough without having to listen to you wring your hands.
