Moment #6

Standing in the grocery store, waiting in line. Standing in the grocery store, not expecting anything to happen.  Then, a moment: your brown eyes catch mine; we are glancing, and I am looking away and fiddling with my fingers and not really knowing what to do. Then, as my family and I search for movies at the exit, standing in a place of in-between, a place of limbo, you appear out of nowhere. Suddenly you are beside me, asking me about the band tee I am wearing, as my family watches in a kind of awed rapture. And I can't believe you're actually talking to me; you, a complete stranger, but how refreshing it is to talk to a boy who shares my taste in music and is not afraid.

I think I will always wear band tees to the grocery store now.
