In which an alcohol-provoked text message receives a surprisingly good response

Mon cœur était un papillon, tout entouré de soie, mais dès qu’on m’a envoyé ces mots le papillon s’est révélé, tout neuf, tout jeune, comme la plus petite joie qui naquît pour la première fois dans mon esprit.

But with graduation in a week, it's a bit like the goldfish they gave out freshman year at First Friday, where everyone was amused and enjoying the pretty fish and then three days later it starved from having no food and  no place to swim and it died in the bathroom sink, a victim of circumstances beyond its control.
