today i spent some time talking to a really special person;
he asked me something that caught me slightly off guard,
"why are you so happy?"

i thought for a moment, and could only respond with the following:

i went to buy a dress on saturday,
and ended up with a three dollar picnic basket instead.
it came with a red and white checkered bow.

and i get to use this picnic basket tomorrow,
on a picnic in a parking garage, even though it's the middle of winter.

this picnic basket will carry peanut butter and jelly sandwiches,
and maybe a soda pop or two;
probably a couple of cupcakes.

and that, i guess, happens to be one of the many, many reasons
i am happy.

oh my, yes.
i love that you bought a picnic basket.
instead of a dress.
i loved all the new clothes i got at christmas,
but of course i cried for my new tea set.

its the little things, i tell you.
