A friend emailed today and said I sounded miserable. I'm really not. I had a potato pierogi earlier today from a Russian bakery near my job and am snacking on a hot toddy and BBQ chips right now so who can be miserable with nourishment like that filling the body?
My world is really surrounded by a lot of beautiful things.
Things like hairy chested pirates.
And lizards stuck in keyholes.
Things like every episode of every season of The Cosby Show being available now live-streaming to netlix members.
Things like having an older friend over for little brother practice.
Things like tonight when Abe leaned over and kissed my cheek and told me I was his favorite. When I asked him how he got to be so sweet, he said, "I don't know. Life just made me that way."
That conversation and BBQ chips go a long way to lift a sad mood.
