answer the question

Do you ever want to
just embrace being happy?
forget cynicism exists?
enjoy being uncool?
be silly and loopy?
turn the music up?  louder?
ball your pants up and throw them?
only eat the middles of your Pop-Tarts?
pull their lower lip down with your thumb and forefinger?
ask the homeless guy “Why?”
tell people that you loved “Sam’s Town” and that they should fuck off?
catch a snowflake on your tongue?
spin around and around and around in your desk chair?
pet that puppy on the corner?
dance on the sidewalk?
stay in this moment forever?
Do you ever just want
the person sitting across from you
to want it too?

    I hate the middle of the Pop-Tart. The corners are my very favorite.

  11. oh, it’s sad at the end.

    but yes, to most of it. Although I already only eat the middle of the pop-tarts.

  12. Sara Jane says:

    Yes. and Yes. But the truth is that I do a lot of these things…like stop people and pet their dog, just starting dancing because I feel like it and turn the music up super loud and then sing louder than it is!

    The last one…always.

    ‘cept maybe the Pop Tarts one… never had one of those.

    (I love wheeled office chairs… particularly when I can “row” around the classroom on one. For some reason the kids think that’s hiLARious.)

  16. brandy says:

    In a word? Yes.


    Can you talk to the person sitting across from me and convince them this would be a good idea?

  17. Becky says:

    Indeed. That’s usually when I pass them my flask.

    (News flash. It works!!)

  18. JenBun says:

    This was like A Day in the Life… :)

    pull their lower lip down with your thumb and forefinger?

    Love this.

    Like your writing style.
    Novella? I’ll have to look into it.
