Tegan: Last night, by accident, when I was brushing my teeth I used a water bottle that sara had put oil oregano in and only people who know what oil oregano is are going to laugh because they can imagine the horrifying pain that I endured. And i just kept thinking drink more water or flush what ever it is that’s on your face off but then i just kept putting more of it on my face because I didn’t realize that the oil oregano was in the water and it’s basically a holistic method of getting rid of a cold and it’s probably one of the grosses things on earth and it simply burns the living shit of what ever it touches. and all day my lips has been turning redder and red cracking but I was kind of drunk so I thought that i had been poisoned. in fact i actually accused someone in our organization of trying to poison me. i thought someone had snuck in and put in like cayenne on my toothbrush as a joke. So all night i tossed and i turned and i had this knot of anxiety inside of me and i was like “I will catch the person who did that to me, i will catch the person who did that to me and i will fucking kill them” and i tossed and i turned and i licked my lips and i drank water, not the same water but different water. when i woke up this morning i found out that i had just drank from the same bottle that Sara had put oil oregano in and i felt such relief to know to know that I was not being slowly driven crazy and then killed
Sara: Come on
Tegan: Seriously. This story you may wonder why i’m telling you is sort of like a metaphor for love
Tegan: Because your brushing your teeth you’re doing natural and good kind of like love but then before you know it it’s whipped all over your face and it burns the shit out of you and then you lay in bed and you toss and turn and you feel sorry for yourself and you think that you are the only person on the planet who’s ever fucking fallen in love and ever had there heart broken in their life “Oh my got i;m so sad i’m the only one” and then all your friends are trying to console you and tell you that that’s happened to them to but inside you’re like “not like this”
Sara: my love is special
Tegan: My love is differ than your’s, is stronger than your’s, it’s memorable in the way yours will never be. but we don’t tell each other that. we sit across from the coffee shop or at the movie or on the phone we just say “Yeah, i bet you do know how i feel” but inside i’m like “no, i am alone” only people who are lucky like me who had endured the kind of love that i had can understand truly how amazing my love is but i’ll pretend like you know just to make myself feel a little bit better. that’s what this one is about.
