The oily plate with crumbs from Tortilla Espanola.
Shoes in the Kitchen.
flip flops everywhere.
The playing cards out on the counter.
Trundle Bed pulled out.
Wires where the XBOX was.

Going from room to room, picking up the pieces the two of you left behind. If I listen I can almost hear the ruckus of you and your friends, singing, dancing, teasing, telling jokes, playing games, making me laugh. This looks nothing like it did Thursday night before your arrival when freshly baked favorites awaited your arrival, everything vacuumed, cleaned and polished. (And yes, you noticed!!)
