Abbreviated Thoughtful Moment on the Bus #1:
I am constantly refreshed by people who, although they are perfectly lovely by themselves, are more obviously complete when their spouse is around. (Like an open parenthesis...
...it just doesn't feel right until its partner comes along.)
There are two women at work who I've recognized as the open parenthesis to the closed parenthesis of their respective husbands. And I love it. It's one of the most beautiful things in the world, I think.
