A not-so-spontaneous mall trip
And taking the roomie along for the ride.
Discovering that two is better than one
When your shopping coincides
With the release date of the next installment
Of the series you are reading.
Eating Hawaiian pizza
(Which you haven’t had in much too long)
And chatting with the roommate.
Spontaneous detours into toy shops
And purchases of ice cream cones,
The sweet dripping out of your bottomless cone.
Visiting your favorite store
And coming away with
But three new articles of clothing from it
All of which happened to be on sale
And all of which flatter you
And express your youness.
Sharing the joy of trying on new clothes
And goofing around with photos.
Sharing what you love.
Holding deep conversations.
Being who you are.
That, my friends,
Is what happiness truly is.
