The best part about friendship is being able to recognize all of the things that could simply go unnoticed, but you chose not to because you enjoy their existence so much, you want to engrave them perfectly into your brain.
Like the way they raise their brows just before they ask a question. The speed of their walk, and how it changes with the current location, the destination, and their mood. How much cream they put in their coffee. The lyrics they feel inspired to belt in public when the right conversation triggers a connection. The subtle shape that their lips form every time they try to tell you a fib. The different pitches of their laugh. How well they wear lipstick. What makes them smile with their entire face. How they smell after a shower. Their favorite words.
These things are valuable bits of information. People are diverse, their habits are so unique, and it’s a part of what makes human contact so special.
