favorite things

by heytherewildflower

Her favorite thing is cats that bat at your hand but really they’re just batting at the air.“It’s sweet the way it seems they’re always grabbing at something they can’t quite touch,”she says. He says his favorite thing is the bearksin rug, which he is dusting with a feather duster. He says his second favorite thing is unexpected eyecontact. “It’s glorious when you realize you have sexual tension with everyone you meet,” he says. She hasn’t seen the moon in days. She can’t stay awake for it anymore. “My least favorite thing is gin,” she says. “My second least favorite is conversation. My third least favorite is wrinkles.” He falls asleep on the rug, and she goes looking for the moon.
