So I'm sitting here writing a post.
The sky is barely lightening.
SM comes wandering out in search of coffee.
Sits down across from me.
I know better than to engage him in intelligent conversation before the second cup but he's unusually chatty today.
"Listen to them birds!" He says.
"They've been chattering away before dawn for the past few weeks." I say typing away on my laptop.
"They're singing like crazy out there." SM observes.
"Course they are. It's mating season out there." I pause, looking up at him.
"Hey, baabeee..." I pitch my voice higher, batting my eyelashes at him.
SM laughs, tips his head back in that quick nod that the kids do.
"Sup..." He says in a deep voice. I laugh.
Always gotta be cool.
