My friend Francesco is the most confident person I have ever known

He does not experience [[hesitation or doubt]]

He introduces himself to strangers at concerts

and climbs fifteen-foot boulders without a crash pad

He once quit a job and got a new one that same day

Sometimes if his nurse friend isn’t around

he asks me to give him a shot in the side

He says, At least I don’t have to save for retirement

He says, I just wish it hadn’t come back so soon

He texts me all the time and I’m like, we just hung out

Although that’s dropped off recently

Since he’s in pain so much of the [[time]]
