You come out from the bathroom after powdering your nose and double checking your favorite red lipstick is still perfect. You enter a busy bustling room full of family, friends, and strangers. Looks like everyone who is anyone came to this shindig. Frank Sinatra is singing classic carols and the notes float from the speakers into your ears. You scan the room for a familiar face, it’s so awkward standing alone. Suddenly your eyes catch a gaze, wow he is the most handsome man you have ever seen, how long has he been looking at you? Your palms start to sweat as he sets down his martini at the bar and makes his way through the room, is he coming to you? He is clearly the life of the party, everyone smiles at him when he passes, is everything moving in slow motion? Suddenly he is right in front of you, he motions with his eyes to look up, you sheepishly smile and tilt your head to look above you, mistletoe. You kiss and your foot pops like you’re in an old storybook. You lean into his chest, and smell his familiar cologne. Married fifteen years and the man still gives you butterflies.
