You know how I recently said that I might be winding up activity on this blog? Well I simply could not leave without expressing these thoughts, not to the hoodie itself, but rather to the person wearing it….
This is yet another one of these inappropriate posts, in that I am never sure whether or not it could possibly be a good idea to type out and publish these posts. Prudence demands that I try not to seem too keen. However the truth is that I am absolutely “too keen”, I am the definition of “too keen”.
So yeah, there is this one photo of you where you are wearing a hoodie. I’ve grasped that you take great care in your appearance. Somehow this hoodie seems more casual than you would usually look. And yet there was something about this photo that just made me stop and stare. You just seemed so much…at ease. I like that photo so much. And then there is also this other photo, where you are wearing a plain black shirt. Once again, I really like that photo. Why am I making a point of this? To be honest, I sincerely don’t know. If ever I get a chance to sit around talking to you again, I would love it if you would wear your hoodie. If you had been wearing your hoodie that day, I don’t know what I would have done. I don’t know what difference that would have made. However, I suspect that it would have made a difference. I would probably just have sat staring and staring at you, unable to actually say anything, and you would have thought “What’s wrong with this woman?!” As I am writing this, I can’t help giggling to myself, as I can appreciate how funny or humorous this paragraph must sound. Yeah, I must admit that it is a little bit tongue-in-cheek. However, I am also being completely sincere!
Additionally, I have been so confused about something for so long. However, I think I’ve finally managed to work out what exactly it was about you that triggered off that behaviour in me that day….
Well I did initially go right ahead to spell out exactly what it was, but then on reflection I decided that it was a little bit too much information to be sharing so publicly. The truth is that I would much prefer to be telling you this directly, and privately….
But You, O Lord, are a shield for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
