subject line: married people parties

 

Vancouver

last night i looked around the room at a going away party for loved ones and realized it was a married people party. the wives were having a dance party in the kitchen. the husbands were playing a golf game on their phones. and then there was me... and you. the only unmarrieds in the place, and i felt a little lost but a little like it was meant to be. like this on-and-off crush i’ve denied and accepted and denied again for the past 2 years could maybe someday end in being married people at a married people party. and i wonder if you noticed too? i wonder if the glances-across-the-room and looking-away-when-they-notice-me-staring-moments will ever become more than just glances. and i wonder if you wonder, too.
