Eight years plus one day ago, HPCPC* and I started smooching in my silly apartment in Pazardjik. One of the ways the apartment was silly was that it had a kitchen bed. I guess it made sense since the apartment was just a living/bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. So if you were swooning from cooking or romance, you could just lie down for a spell.
But I digress. And will again. As I walked home from work this past Wednesday, Josh Rouse's Sweetie came on my iPod. The words and the mood of the song are so evocative of that time in our lives. I don't know a better way to embed it, so here is a YouTube version. You can also play it on Josh Rouse's Myspace page (currently #5 in his playlist).
We'll sleep on rooftops
We'll ride on bicycles
Maybe we'll get married
Don't you want to sweetie?
