Episode 51: Can’t Stop Looking At You


Oh my goodness when you can't stop stealing glances and they can't keep their eyes off you. Real estate listings that fill you with joy, fortune cookies that make you glad, stamps in your passport to far off places -- it's smaller spells, the everyday joys that make your heart happy.

Shiny, patent leather shoes, the very first day that you wear them.

Wearing tights with little polka dots all over them.

Watching a marching band come crashing down the street.

A whole mess of kids, all wearing school uniforms.

Expensive mechanical pencils.

A really cool ink stamp in your passport.

When they can’t stop looking at you and you can’t stop looking at them.

The biggest cable knit sweater you ever saw.

Hearing a really beautiful accent.

Being close enough to feel their heartbeat.

Erasing something cleanly with a fresh eraser.

When the traffic light turns green before you get to it, so you don’t even have to stop.

Not knowing which day of the week it is.

When you recommend a TV show to someone and they actually love it..

Eating ice cream out of the container.

Electronically signing a document.

A bouquet of the most delicate pale, peach colored roses.

Seeing a dog dish with water, outside a store.

When the fortune inside of a fortune cookie actually feels a little bit accurate.

A real estate listing for the most perfect old mansion in a part of town that you’ve always loved.

Reading a poem that ends like a gut punch, so beautiful you can hardly stand it.
