Last night my ex texted me. Not because he was trying to rekindle something that died out long before we broke up, or maybe he was I don’t know.
But all I could think about was how earlier that day my boyfriend was tickling me on the floor, and how much I love laughing with him every day. When he said I was a cute little dinosaur and put his hand on my cheek. And how I fell asleep on the couch with my head on his leg. All I could think about was how each day is better than the one before and how he’s taught me so much about how relationships should be. How HE gives me everything he couldn’t.
But I was friendly and did my best with small talk and said I hope things get better for him.
When I got home from work I waited for my boyfriend to wake up and when he sat down beside me I leaned over and hugged him. Just so happy.
Last night my boyfriend came home from his friend’s house all drunk and goofy, arms loaded up with peanut M&Ms, cookies and garlic bread. I had woken up from a deep NyQuil sleep and was waiting for him on the couch. When he saw me he said, “Babe! I’m so glad you didn’t go to work I got us snacks.” I laughed at the randomness of his purchases and his sloppy smile. He hugged me really tight and said, “I hung out without you for like 4 hours and it suckkkedd!” I could feel my heart overflowing and I said, “I missed you too peach.”
