you panic a bit because now that it is december and no longer november, christmas is officially near and you’ve no idea where you’ll spend it or with whom. but you’re sure that just like last year, it will work itself out before the 25th.
red and green.
a warm blanket and your bed.
earmuffs and mittens.
hot tea and milk.
spiced nuts and maple syrup.
peppermint and white chocolate.
if you see a french boy in the winter months, reach into the pocket of his jacket.
because you’re guaranteed 90% of the time to find a couple of clementines.
it’s a phenomenon you discovered last year.
you’d talk to one. and out of nowhere, he would begin peeling a clementine.
you’d run into one in the hallway. and as you did the bise, his hands would suddenly be holding clementines.
even the ones you don’t know.
on the metro. they will be texting or reading. you turn your head. and when you glance at them again, they’re snacking on a clementine.
or even on the bus. they’ll be staring out of the window. and five seconds later you notice that they’re expertly peeling a clementine.
french boys have a magical ability to pull out clementines from out of thin air at the most random moments.
enjoy the snow + your favorite things about winter!
