It's a regular soap opera out there

I'm writing about healthcare in a desperate, but probably ultimately futile, attempt to communicate my romantic attraction to Ezra. Meanwhile, apparently Matt is apparently linking to me in the hopes that we can someday hook up. Perhaps I'll consider it, since my hopeless pining has availed me nothing . . . but wait! Is Ezra coming around? Even though I dress like a ditsy teenager? Tune in next week, same time, same station . . .
