the long way.

December 22, 2009
we call it “taking the long way.”
paper cups of hot chocolate. mixed tapes. open windows in the summertime, blasting heat in winter. and just a few extra minutes to finish a story, to cry over unrequited love, to commiserate about our parents.
an errand to get a gallon of milk turned into what you really needed all along.
{and here, a really good song about just this sort of thing}.
