Our shared interest in film was the first thing that really got my attention. Then I noticed that we like much of the same music. Over the weekend, during one of my notorious bouts of emotional instability, with iTunes on shuffle, a song that I once dedicated to him started playing as if to tell me to stop being such an idiot. It’s these random coincidences that occur so often between us that make us both wonder if there truly is such a thing as “fate”.
Case in point, most recently, I’ve had the song in this audio post stuck in my head the past few weeks and I wasn’t sure why. I started to consider making this our official song. Then, he told me that he had recently changed his usericon to a photo containing an excerpt of this song’s lyrics, and that he had been thinking about making this our song too.
So, yes, we’ve become one of those couples. Cheese, crackers, the whole shebang.
“It’s not about geography, or happenstance
You need to fly, and take a chance
You don’t need to soar to emptiness
Float on high, and forever dance alone
‘coz I feel like home”—"Sunday Afternoon" by Rachael Yamagata
