(these are about safety, you know)

  • Halfway into Goodnight, the brief pause before OkaySeeYaBye and dashing down the stairs to my train. Well, the moment was there and it was free, so I took it. Dry papery unprepared lips, just the right coolness to keep me smiling all the way to my stop.

  • Forehead to forehead, nose to nose, eyes to laughing eyes, it could have been a kiss but it wasn't. Don't misunderstand this one, it was like palm against palm through a window, only better.

  • A face so familiar I knew it by heart but wanted to make sure there had been no shifting of smile lines (hoped they were not sliding into sadness). When I discovered the new happy ones, how lucky do you think I felt?
