Have you ever noticed that when your nose is really cold from being outside, and you scrunch it up *like this* it takes longer for it to “un-scrunch”?

The girl scrunches her nose, un-scrunches, and her eyes go wide. “It does! It really does! That’s so weird.” She continues to scrunch her nose for the next several minutes.

Suddenly she stops scrunching her nose and drops this heavy weight on my chest, “Erica, did you hear about what happened in Connecticut?”

I collected myself enough to reply, “I did.” 

“It made me sad.”

“Well, it made me remember how much I really care about you guys here.”

“You do?”

“Of course I do. You’ll be in my heart forever.”

“And mine, too.”
