The Little Things
Posted by thefunnygirl on Saturday, January 23, 2010
When you love someone, sometimes you see magic in some little thing they do. The way they flip the burger on the grill, the way one eye squeezes closed a bit more than the other when they smile, they way they hold their toothbrush or splash their feet in the pool. Endearing little everyday things can make your heart skip a beat and make you smile. We have been fortunate to get a glimpse into David’s world. Anyone with full-blown ODD knows David’s crooked smile, his shy smile, his eyebrow moves, his little strut across the stage, the face he makes when he ends a glory note. There have been so many moments we have been able to share with him, yet there are so many little everyday things we will never get to see. We all have our David obsessions – his hair, his nose, his clothes, etc….and as creepy as he would find this exercise, I would love to know what little thing you’d like to know about or see David doing (please be respectful). Not that we want to invade his privacy – just some curious musings by bored fans awaiting a book signing tour (please God) or other epic announcement….Does he type using the home row? Does he roll up his sock all the way before he puts it on his foot? Does he clip his nails from the thumb to the pinky or the other way? Does he have an elaborate skin routine that keeps him so sparkly?
If you cannot narrow it down to one thing, please feel free to ramble on – David would approve of rambling. My secret little thing goes a little something like this:
Pretend for a moment with me that David would actually eat a Cinnabon. He is presented with a large Cinnabon, complete with extra icing. No fork, no knife, no napkins. He picks it up with his huge manhands and looks it over, planning his attack. Will he start at one edge or at the top? Will he orbit it or go from one edge right across? Will he let the icing drip down or will he be sure to take careful bites that include equal parts cinnabon and icing? Either way, this would be quite the spectacle. Either way, there will be icing on his face and hands. And he’ll have to do something with it. Either way, this will end well.
FYI – I know I am a freak, and I fly my freak flag proudly. 🙂
