Sometimes I get frustrated with my living situation, but I really do like living with people and I like the particular people I live with. I like that we have roomie dinners sometimes, and take the dog for walks, and sit on the porch for hours in the summer. My roommates do surprisingly sweet things for me every once in awhile, things I wouldn't expect. Things like buy me ginger ale when I had food poisoning, or wake me up to coffee and waffles to thank me for a small favor. Occasionally I come home to some little gift left just inside my door; a chocolate bar, a tape picked up on a weekend trip, or a book they thought I'd like.
So thanks Spike. Thank you for remembering that I was interested in this book, and thank you for leaving it for me while you move on to your next adventure. We'll all miss you here in the house, miss having you above. Good luck in Montana.
