I am...

A special type of dork qualified by too many books, saving voicemails that make me smile, missing my mom, liking The History Channel, waking up early on Christmas, creating a playlist for a party that hasn’t yet been planned (and in my mind it’s called “Snow Day” in a hotel room and everyone must wear Freezy Freakies)…

No good at figuring out which printer is the one I’m supposed to print to, untying knots, giving directions, following directions, uncomplicating matters, keeping my bed made, finishing paintings, having an inside voice, arranging flowers so one doesn’t stick up in the middle, reading a magazine any way but back to front, remembering that thing I wasn’t supposed to forget…

A believer in naps, doodling in important meetings, frequent hot chocolate breaks, sarcasm as a cure-all, spooning when it means something, IMing for hours, laughing at my own jokes if no one else will, listening to hearts not minds, telling it like it is, having a back-up plan…

Elated often, regularly confused, hardly ever thirsty, nervous in spurts, and thankful every day of my life…

That was beautiful...also, stepping on crunchy leaves, smiling for the sun, being the slowest eater, occasionally paranoid and always wondering.
