I was at a lecture the other day, half asleep on my girlfriend’s shoulder, and the speaker was explaining the beauty of life to all of us jaded and weary co-eds and how we all ought to identify our exquisite moments of the day. i was thinking, one can’t really have an exquisite moment every day – that’s just too much! – but then i dozed off again. well, it happened. i was struck with a truly exquisite moment. and for that one moment, everything negative completely disappeared. i forgot about the friends who were abandoning me because they found out i was gay, about the ex-boyfriend who “is still in love” with me, about the anxiety of telling my parents and my old friends from childhood, about all the petty day-to-day annoyances (otherwise known as my roommate) that knaw at your nerves. it all faded away as i talked to my best friend (who is thousands of miles away, and whom i miss and love dearly) over the internet with the use of my girlfriend’s web-cam and cuddled with my girlfriend. i felt completely surrounded by love, and love feels kind of like putting on a warm fuzzy sweater on a cold, dreary and wet day. anyway, i just thought i’d share my moment before the feeling went away, and while my GF is taking a shower.
so… what was your exquisite moment?
