The View

on
“Hey, don’t zip that up! I was enjoying it”

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.

  5. What a lovely view! And that food looks yum.

    *”I like who I have become.”

    “I like the fact people get to see the Emmy I have always gotten to see.”*

    That is the best part of the whole post. I know people will say the picture is better but (while that is lovely as hell) I would disagree with them. =)

    I’m with Amorous Rocker. Last night Vince and I were out at a club and, much to my knees’ dismay, I spent most of the time on the dance floor with the ladies AND gents. Vince was able to unappologetically enjoy the view. I joked — very inappropriately I’m sure! — with our friends. It’s great becoming on the outside who we always knew we were on the inside, and doing it together.

    Oh, and Garbonzo is so right, you do have lovely “girls!” 🙂
