Lacey had her sweater wrapped gently around her. It made her think of the way life should be. It was warm and comfortable. It was made of soft fibers and when she wore it, it made her feel good. Someday she hoped to find someone to share her life with who made her feel like her sweater did but in a deeper way. She thought that perhaps it should make her feel the way she did when she took her sweater out of the dryer – warm and receiving little signals from the tingling shocks it gave off. Lacey believed that finding the perfect person to be in her life ought to be like pairing accessories with her sweater – it all just fit together and felt right. At the end of the day she hung up her sweater and smiled, knowing she’d get to wear it again soon. It was a comforting thought.
