Because I’m leaving Tuesday (and I’m terrified), I spent the better part of the weekend with The Boy. Though I have no idea what the future has in store for either of us, it’s apparent we still care deeply for one another.
Things I Consciously Missed
- Having a cup of tea & a nice long chat at The Boy’s mother’s house.
- The calm of the Connecticut shoreline.
- Happy Meals at 3 a.m. Because.
- After-lunch naps.
- Being tucked in with too many blankets and a kiss when he gets up for work and thinks I’m still sleeping.
As I was driving home this morning, the wind caught my hair. I smelled whatever scent it is that exists in that spot between his neck and shoulder, where I bury my face in a good hug. I wish I could keep it with me for the next however-many-weeks, but ex-girlfriends don’t borrow hoodies, and I need to wash my hair.
