The One Where Bliss Gets Her Way, and Well, Garrick, too.
Let’s Just Say Ways Are Had
My girl was made of joy.It seeped from her every pore, shined from her eyes, and sang with the swayof her hips. I watched her jumping on her bed, screaming silently into her hands,and I knew then that I wanted to make sure she was this happy always.With a smile, I asked, "What are you doing?"She squealed and collapsed onto her mattress, and I couldn't put into wordswhat her adorable look of shock made me feel.You think you know what an emotion feels like
grief, anger, jealousy
but then a moment will come along so fierce in it's effect that it redefines the feeling andputs what you thought that emotion was to shame.Bliss redefined happiness for me.With her hands crisscrossed over her chest like her heart was about to leapout of its cage, she asked, "What are you doing here?""I saw your car outside, so I came over. I didn't realize you'd already startedthe party without me." I loved that she didn't even try to hide her embarrassment with me anymore.
She’s accepted it.
"I take it you're excited about how the showwent tonight?"She climbed off the bed, stumbling over nothing. My smile spread wider.She said, "The show was great, but I'm glad to be home."
