12 Things I want Right Now

1. The ability to conjure up more than a list. It seems spring has pulled my ability to write further from me with each additional minute of daylight.

2. To be pulled in close for a kiss. A perfect kiss. A nice, lovely, perfect kiss.

3. To remind you guys of this guy from the beach in Mykonos. Not the perfect kiss.

4. Travel plans. This is the longest I have gone without traveling or without plans to travel.

5. To have as much fun as I did this night with my friend Jeremy in Albufera Playa, Mallorca.

6. A smaller bed. I don’t own much of anything. I’ve been getting rid of things since 2010. Currently the only furniture I own is this ginormous bed. It is overwhelming and a pain in the ass to lug around in my daydreams of traveling and moving and running around the earth.

7. To stop this one chin hair from EVER coming back. Why? Why? Why? I’d take a, as in singular, one, uno, creepishly long, old man, white eyebrow hair that touches my cheek over this one chin hair ever again. I’d embrace the eyebrow hair, name it even. I’d call it Bruce.

8. Fresh kajmak and a pljeskavica the size of your face.

9. A text. A comment. A love note from you. Yes. You. Reading This. You.

10. To make a new friend in a new country.

How new friends in new countries plan to find each other on facebook.
How new friends drunk people from two different countries visiting a new country that don’t speak the same language plan to find each other on facebook.

11. Someone to take the trash out. Please someone come take out the trash. I HATE TAKING THE TRASH OUT. It isn’t even half full but it has fermented beets in it and … wait scratch that… if I let it go much longer it might walk itself out.

12. To get these yoga pants off immediately b/c they are causing me a severe camel toe that is threatening to rip me in half.

And you? What do you want RIGHT NOW?

    Ah, an author who stirs the imagination! The Perfect Kiss, getting you out of your yoga pants, a small bed. My dear, you make an old man feel very happy (or perhaps, a happy man feel very old).

    I’m with you on one perfect kiss.
    Well, and the wish of every mom, a day where time stands still (so the children can’t move) for 24 hours while I sleep.

      I die for that perfect kiss. Die for it. It is one constant thought I carry with me all the time. I am so close to just starting to kiss strangers at random in search for it.

      I also think you just spoke for all mothers everywhere Rani!

        I’ve had that perfect kiss a couple of times. And I too am at a point where I might start kissing strangers in search of it. Maybe we’ll both stumble across something? I’m just afraid of all the sloppy kisses we might have to wade through. And the groping. I love your blog, lady!

    Oh and the new bed… awesome idea.
    Recently downsized from a 17 year old King Size to a brand new Queen size. Way easier to make the bed, sheets are cheaper, tho getting in requires work. I may purchase a spring board…
    What do *I* want right now?
    Lunch. And BAM there it is…. 🙂

      Yes, I completely agree with you Kate. I have a California Kng and it is 27 inches deep and has a pillowtop on it. it is the most amazing, most comfortable bed I have ever owned BUT GOOD LORD, It is just so big. Also I literally have two sets of sheets that fit it and practically die from exhaustion every time I have to make the bed. I am about to downsize to a sleeping bag.
