I Have a Great Capacity for Like
b) I like eating granola and taking one little piece between my front teeth and and biting it in half.
c) I like breaking up dried mud with a stick in the summertime, preferably under a swing.
e) I like how some babies have multiple folds of skin under their mouth. Chins, I guess. Baby chins. Anyway, I like to go flub-flub-flub-flub on their chin parts with my pointer finger.
f) I like the way it feels when I'm utterly exhausted and sink into my bed for a good sleep.
g) I like a cold pillow on my face.
h) I like to nap with my shoes on.
j) the way it makes the world sound muffled
k) Sometimes I like to talk to God by rapping my prayers.
l) I like to think God thinks that's funny.
m) I don't particularly like Suzanna Vega, but I like that my brain player just starting playing "My Name is Luca" right now.
n) I like to stretch my wenis and watch it slowly go back to its original shape.
o) I like to say "wenis."
q) I like the sting of a tattoo needle.
r) I like remembering how my grandma used to take my temperature by simply placing her lips on my forehead.
s) I like the fact that ears are bendable.
u) I like to giggle at inappropriate times and at inappropriate places.
v) I like the way copies come out of the copy machine all warm-like and
w) I like to hold warm copies up to my face.
x) I also like to hold a fresh serving of a non-buttered pancake up to my face before eating it.
y) I like the sense of accomplishment I feel when I spray Pledge on things. This is mostly because it smells like I spent a lot of time cleaning. But really I just sprayed some Pledge.
z) I like how God is tricky and funny. And how He's all "Oh, really? You think you want that? Okay...I'll let you want that for a while, but that's not really who you are." And then minutes/days/weeks/months/years pass and the ache for what I wanted has detached itself from my gut and gone to seek someone else who has the wantings. And by degrees, I turn and face what is and I'm like, "Holy shit. This is awesome."
