Head on my shoulder

She stayed home from co-op today and I sat next to her on the couch. She rested her head on my shoulder. We sat like that for a long time. I might have dozed. She might have too. I could hear the wind picking up in big gusts. I sat there with my coat on. And a blanket over me.

"What was your favorite part about being sick?" I asked her.

Silly question.

She smiled.

"Popsicles. And TV," she said.

I had a few favorites too: naps. Toast. And I lost six pounds.

It's always good to find the silver lining.
