A Letter of Apology (from the Flaky Friend) - Page 2
What you call being flaky, us flakes often think of as trying to preserve as much of the pristine whiteness that still remains on the paper. Sure, there may be some cool drawings already on the paper, but isn’t it better for the paper to be empty (boring as that may seem) than to be filled with smudges or scratched out mistakes?
The truth that people like me don’t often take enough time to consider, is that no man can create a perfect masterpiece, but the talented artist knows how to weave even his most embarrassing smudges into his final work.
That’s an intimidating venture for people like me—which is why we are particularly thankful that we have people like you in our lives. You pull us out of our flakiness, and aren’t afraid to tell us we’re crazy for staring at blank white sheet of paper. So please, on behalf of flakes everywhere, don’t give up on us.
