1. A think layer of white over everything. 

2. The thud of feet hitting the ground. It is too early for them to be up.

3. Bacon and eggs and toast. I skip all of that for a banana and a cappuccino. 

4. The floors still need to be swept. Tiny dried-up shreds of cheese are scattered around the base of the refrigerator. That's another thing that will need to be cleaned: the refrigerator. 

5. Must take one bite at a time. 

6. I can't hold it in anymore.

7. Something about the muffins. She says that she dipped the muffins in melted butter and then dipped them in a cinnamon-sugar mix. Melted butter is always magical. 

8. I'm laughing so hard that I'm crying. I needed it. I really needed today.

9. "This is the worst kept secret."

10. "It's the uncertainty that is killing me." Is there ever a sure thing? "I just need more specifics." In this case, would a few extra details really assuage the anxiety?
