I am never going to

I think it’s important to be honest in any relationship, but in this one, I just can’t. Don’t take this the wrong way. I value our time together, I do. Though you make me cringe, and sometimes hurt me, I keep coming back and always will. Some part of me hopes you see this and will understand. Another part hopes you never see it, that my lie will never be discovered.

Dear dental hygienist. Though I tell you I will, I am never, ever, ever going to floss.
