on Big Things disguised as little things

5 . January . 2011


it’s the little things that
really are the Big Things.

like having carrielove + corycates
with me at school pick up.

Best. Day. Ever.

xo, guys.


sometimes my love of efficiency
overrides my common sense
and my fingers smart
for the next few days.

included in those
benign looking bags:
2 gallons of milk.
2 dozen eggs (aka. frah-gee-lay, they must be italian)
a big ol’ jug o’ laundry soap.
a tub of vanilla ice cream.
apples
oranges
+ more

ps – the reason they’re
sitting on the snowy sidewalk
in front of starbucks?

it was my 2nd rest stop
to set down the bags
and look around for a friendly face.

[you’d be surprised how often
scotthinzman or my neighbor, daryle,
happen to walk by and rescue me
by sharing the load.
merci, guys.]
