Annie Spratt

Sunscreen. SPF 30.

A firm sense of bitter resentment and burning irritation.

Headphones so that you can listen to the one anthem that sort of reminds you of him on repeat throughout the plane ridejust to see if it still constructs you want to tear your hair out. And also because the airline headphones hurt your ears.

Makeup remover wipes.

A mini toothbrush and toothpaste that you picked up last minute from Target so that your smile hollers thanks for breaking up with me, Sean, Im doing great.

A solid pair of comfortable strolling shoes.

A series of life updates spanning from the last day you two spoke to now that’ll build him say ” haha, shit .”

Strong deodorant to combat any and all panic attack you suffer on the street because youre persuaded hes strolling towards you. Its unbelievable how a person who had seems nothing like him can still induce you panic and wish for the depths of hell to finally open up and welcome you so you dont have to be like oh wow, Greg, so wild that in a city of millions I happen to run into you in the three days Im hereno, recollect how the last day you find me I was exclaiming?

2-3 going out outfits, just in case you decide to hit the town!

But also That One Attire you you appear very good in and you really hate to admit that you’re bringing it ~*~ for him ~*~ just in case ~*~ because seriously ~*~. You’ll be angry while wearing it, but you’ll appear super hot. Whatever, you’ve already set it in your suitcase now, there’s no going back. Fuck you, Rob.

Extra contact lenses and your backup glasses.

Your phone charger so you are never left in a situation where you can’t fake being on your phone in a public space. Sorry David, can’t construct mindless and soul-crushing small talk with you in this coffee shop we both unfortunately happen to be in at the same period! As you can see from my well-lit telephone screen I have 18,000 unread emails that I’ve decided would be a good time to organize! And also I’m doing great! I mean, look at my inbox!

A raincoat for any unpredictable climate. Maybe even an umbrella. Always better to be over prepared.
