Day 177: It was sunny.

We were sitting in the tall grass on the mountain checking out the view.
There were signs cautioning us of black bears.
But we were too busy talking and being silly.
I showed him how to play ‘chicken or rooster’ with the weeds.
We played a few rounds.
I remember he laughed really hard at something.
It was infectious.
So I laughed too.
And I thought to myself how much I could love him.
If only he’d let me.

  1. Extraordinary - exact same thing happened to me! Except that I was on Hampstead Heath.
    And there are no black bears,
    only grey squirrels - stroppy though.
    And I don't know how to play 'chicken or rooster'
    Oh, and no-one laughed.
    'Cause I was on my own.
    Tchhh!
