little things that aren't little:
"of course i remember"
the ability to maintain a journal
comfortable silence
people apologizing for things that happened a long time ago
chopped fruits from parents
the last bite
being asked for your opinion
minor tone changes
texting first
when they offer you their coat
pep talks
"you were right"
when they give you the bigger slice
when you're both running late
a calmed nervous system when around them
when they pay attention to what you show them
"i feel the same way"
