small pleasures

The Green-Eyed Boy made me a mix CD. It’s definitely not the first time anyone’s made one for me, nor is it the first in a long while, as I have many friends and acquaintances who enjoy sharing music. But it’s certainly the first one that’s meant something for a very long time, if for no other reason than it’s completely out of character for him. He’s the sort of guy who will pay for dinner or give me an extra satellite radio or walk me to the security line at the airport… but this definitely took me by surprise. As a result, my heart melted just a little bit more this afternoon.
