Cute-cat induced crying with close friends on your bedroom floor.

Ordering food together and reminding someone they can’t eat dairy. 

No talking, but reading or journaling together. 

Negotiating when to watch Big Little Lies or The World’s a Little Blurry.

Entering a rehearsal room with a fresh, new cast for the first time. 

Contact through the car window, touching hands. 

The first hug after a year apart. 

Interviewing someone you haven’t talked to since they graduated. 

Offering boy advice to your sister across the country.

Nudging your close friend during an awkward but hilarious moment in public. 

Seeing the full face of someone in person for the first time since March 2020.
