What's gotten into you Charlie? You've been so depressed all week and now it's breakfast in bed and picnics.
Well, I woke up this morning and thought it's time to stop feeling sorry for yourself and seize the day. And I can't think of anyone else I'd rather do some day seizing with than you. So what do you say? Let's drop the little cherub off with Auntie Sun and Uncle Jin, and you and I will go for a little stroll.
I'd love to.
