What’s the best way to follow up w/ a recruiter without sounding desperate? Had an initial call with them last fall while I was freelancing at my dream agency & might have sounded not so enthusiastic.

Hi __
We spoke last year about X role, but I was freelancing at the time and unavailable. That stint is coming to a close and I'd love to re start conversations if you have something that might be a good fit. Let me know either way and thanks in advance.

“Can we make the drizzle a little more luscious?”

My issue is less with the fact that the word “luscious” is pretty binary. The drizzle is either luscious or it isn’t. My issue is the “a little more” part. So, it’s luscious right now. We want it MORE luscious—but definitely not a lot more, just a little. Otherwise it would be TOO luscious. Can’t have that.
