"I want this in water colors"

by zuleika on October 26, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Said my friend to me when I told her how a random stranger shared her umbrella with me this morning. She didn't even ask, just came up next to me and raised it over my head.

Her full quote was "That's a story book memory. I want this in water colors."

mmm so delicious. I want to eat that.
