In sweatpants and his cheeks rubbed raw from scrubbing, he pretended they were always this cradled in warmth.

  1. Wow, wow! Seriously, I loved this. You are gifted, and your post was more impressionable in 81 words than most are in 800. Was an easy decision, following your blog.
    I would love for you to check out my recent post, “Unexpressed,” and let me know your thoughts. And if you like it enough, perhaps you’ll consider following my blog. (: http://whirlysquirrel.wordpress.com/
