What a beautiful girl

[post transcribed from a paper journal]

Addie stopped by Monday evening. Apparently, she had been out driving, and her mother had decided that she should visit me. It was completely unexpected because I hadn’t been able to get ahold of her that day, and she had never just stopped by before. She brought me a copy of The Doors of Perception/Heaven and Hell that her mother thought I should read. That, too, was unexpected, although not entirely bad.

I had seen Addie just two days before, yet as she had approached my door, I realized that she was much more beautiful than my memory depicts her. I kept thinking that she was the sort of girl that, were I not already going out with her, I would be totally attracted to. I will be sure to treat her that way from now on.
