You call it Pareto, we call it love


"All I want is 20% of your time to see through 80% of my love."
Silence.
"I know I didn't say 100%. That would need more than a lifetime. So?"
Smile. Nod. Yes!!!

  1. This is so so true. But sad when you cant even get 20%. This one hit home. Nicely done.

    1. Yeah, that 20% is really hard to get by but if you do get it, it makes difference.

  7. Percentages are ridiculous on their face, but when you see through their menaing to the person, then you understand the depth of emotion. This was a strong 33.
