You know what I would really like to happen today? I would love for everyone around me to shut the hell up. Just for one day, one precious day. Not in the sense of stifling thoughts, or in the sense of not being there, but in the sense of not feeling like they must constantly fill the air around me with things I am not ready for. I am not normally like this. Me, the reigning queen of meaningless chatter, finally wanting the unthinkable! Perhaps my body has suddenly become the vehicle for some new introverted person who would rather stare out a window than talk. Perhaps I am changing, or a shell of someone who has changed already.

Yes, this is my sole wish for today, and since today has yet to happen, it just may come true.
