While at Borders the other day, I was standing in the magazine section, looking at my luscious Man Candy in DNA Magazine. Just then, the door opened and a little girl came skipping past, singing about how she was going to get a cookie. My response took me by surprise. I was jealous.
As happy as I ever am, I don't know if it would be appropriate to skip and sing about it in public. I think people might even look at me funny if I was out in town singing about how glad I am to be in an anthology or how much I love my shoes. This little girl was so happy, she just had to express it. I wish we didn't have to lose that as adults. Or, it we don't lose it, we sure have to hide it.
So, maybe, just maybe today I'm gonna sing a little. Sing about how great meeting everyone last night was. Sing about how happy I am to be in the air conditioning and sing a bit while I'm making my lunch. Who wants to come skip with me?
