Sometimes, life can be hard.
Sometimes, surviving in a sea of societal sameness and banal blandness can make your surroundings seem grey-scale. Why not cast away your troubles and bring colour into your life with beauty, good friends and better booze as it is not the best living but the most living that counts.
But above all, make it a good story.
A good love story, if you can manage that. Let any silly consequences work themselves out as everything is alright in the end, and if it’s not alright then it’s not the end!
