Eustathia (yoos-tay’-thi-a): Promising constancy in purpose and affection.

ME: I will never leave you. I will always be by your side. I will not abandon you. I’m here forever. You can count on me. I’m yours until the end of time. I will never let you down. I’m your knight in . . .

YOU: Wait! Hold on! Stop!

What are you some kind out-of-control cliche machine?

If you want ME to stick around, cool it with the faithfulness BS and act like a normal person.

ME: Your wish is my command.

YOU: This is your last chance: kill the cliches or I’m going home.
