The Disadvantages of Living in the Moment

I remember when it was raining and sunny at the same time.

And I remember when I stepped into a theater soaked to the bone after a rainy walk. I waited in the crowded lobby and dripped into a paper cup of too hot Earl Grey.

Those were moments.

But there was another time, in the company of sunshine. You were there and you said something to me and I don’t remember what it was. It was perfect, what you said, and I looked at you and you were perfect. And I said, “You’re amazing,” almost aloud.

Then I stood there waiting for the perfect moment.
