Some days it’s about laser focus. Some days it’s about being super-stoked you don’t trip on your laces. When I open my eyes I can feel them water and suck back into their sockets. It’s been a mandatory extra-blinking kind of day. I’ve ‘lost’ my glasses twice. Once when I was actually wearing them.
My eyes water and the bottom drops out of my stomach. “Yes, baby. Someday. But not for a long, long time. Come here. We can play Angry Birds together.” I shut my eyes and hold her close.
