Dear Benjamin Gibbard,
Thanks for writing beautiful, evocative, lyrical, soul-catching music.
Thanks for not only protecting me from water bourne illness, but also for the way your smell is rekindled every time I wash my hands or put lotion on. I tried to wash you off, but instead you keep reminding me that I worked out today.
Dear The Scientist,
Thanks for not only being the best Coldplay song ever written, but also for having such a mind-blowing music video. How did they get it to go backwards while his mouth moves forward? As I said, mind-blowing, which is something I need a little more of in my life.
Dear Hug from Said Tall, Skinny Boy,
Thanks for being the first hug I got after I didn't get that job I wanted. Your unexpectedness and genuity kept me from crying in front of all those people.
(I'm aware that genuity isn't a word, but shouldn't it be?)
Dear Mustard Yellow Shoes,
Thank you for matching so many of my clothes. I appreciate that you are as versatile as black, but better because you match brown.
