I paused mid-zip and looked at him weird.
“What? I’m cold. What view?”
He answered me with his eyes looking at my chest.
I unzipped it to where it was and looked down.
“Oh, I guess you did have a good view” I laughed.
Under my zip-up hoodie, I was wearing a v-neck t-shirt that shows my cleavage nicely. While I leaned forwards, talking to him as I sipped on my beer, he was able to look right down my shirt. So, I leaned forward on my elbows again, sipped my beer, and smiled.
We both laughed.
“A few years ago, there is no way I would have done that you know. Sitting at a pub doing this.”
“A few years ago, you wouldn’t have worn a t-shirt with that low of a v-neck.”
“I like who I have become.”
“I like the fact people get to see the Emmy I have always gotten to see.”
I periodically have these moments of clarity. These moments where I realize how much I have become a better version of myself. And today was one of those days.
And during lunch, as we ate, my husband grabbed his iPhone and snapped a picture.
“What are you doing?”
“Just want to remember the view.”
Updated: okay, I knew if I didn’t post the picture, I would get comments. So here it is….what can I say, I’m compliant.
