Dear Somebody I Will Meet Someday,

Can we sit down for a cup of coffee and talk about why you didn’t like your English teacher your Sophomore year of high school? Or maybe why you did like your Chemistry teacher?

And can you tell me about the way the crunching of leaves made you feel right before your 5th birthday? Let’s talk about the first time you ever decided that apple pie was your favorite kind of pie. Describe your favorite person without adjectives. And then tell me all of the kinds of different drinks you’ve ever ordered at Starbucks and have you ever asked for something that wasn’t on the menu? Would you rather fall asleep to the sound of rain or wake up to it? How do you talk to 3 AM, with tenderness or contempt? 

I want to know everything about you— mostly the things that other people wouldn’t think to ask. Someday I will know so much about you, I don’t know if it will be nearly enough, and I don’t know if you’ll want to tell me. But I hope it is, and I hope you will. So, until one day when you can answer,

Best regards,
A Stranger Who Wants to Love You
