hurts like heaven

dear girl,

here are some reasons i wish you were here:

+ i work in a really elegant building. tall stone columns on the outside, an open hall and grand stairway inside, it's the perfect place to to host a masquerade ball. i could meet you at the stairs when i get off work and we could descend them like we were royalty.

+ my friend and i are making a really interesting set of movies right now.  like, i'm really excited about this project. when we're working in the studio late at night, when i'm adjusting the lights, i wish you could be there with us.  the creative energy is invigorating and i want to share it.

+ i stopped and got layne's chicken tonight. i would have bought one for you, too, if you were in the passenger seat.

+ i'm going to the football game tomorrow. we get to kiss every time a&m scores a touchdown.

+ rock climbing is a blast. i think you should come with me.

+ i think i'd be more effective with my time at school if i knew i got to see you at the end of the day.

+ besides, it's almost Christmas time, so we'd have all of that magic to share together...  ; )

paul writes that he has fought the good fight and there is a crown laid up for him. but not just for him but for all who are valiant, because heaven by yourself would be pretty dull. i've said it before and i'll say it again: the times when i most wish you were in my life is when things are good.

at the end of the day, i'd like to look in the mirror and see you flossing next to me.

wherever you are,
i wish you were here,
i love you,

Dear Jeff,

I hope you are printing these out and saving them somewhere for Ms. Goose.

Most sincerely,

Dear Brother,
I'm envious of your grand hall and staircase. It does sound lovely. I'm excited for your movie that you are excited about. As for flossing, I have one boy who demands the floss, and would like to unwind the entire case if left to his own desires. He also seems to think that child abuse is changing diapers and wearing pants in cold weather, because he sure hollers like he's being tortured during these times. But way too floss--it adds six months onto your estimated life expectancy :)

I would like to echo Laurie's statement, but with a technological twist: You should put a tag in each one of these blog posts so that you can pull them up in an instant when you meet her. She's gonna love them.

I agree with Becky and with 786 too. Except I read that flossing adds 6 months to 6 years onto your life expectancy.
