The Sweater Song

Ingrid Michaelson - The Way I Am

She could hear him making breakfast in the next room. She thought about when she'd ever been happier, and she couldn't come up with another instance. Was this, then, her happiest?

Did people know they were living their happiest moment while they were living it? Of course not, she snickered, that's why we keep living, not knowing that we've already reached our euphoric high. Well, she decided, I'm happiest right now.

She wondered if she needed to do something to commemorate this wonderful time she'd remember forever as her happiest. She looked around the room, searching for a removable momento she could keep. Something she could look upon every now and again in her later years, something that would bring a smile to her face at the touch.

She spotted yesterday evening's movie ticket stubs on the night stand. She took them into her hands, and held them closely to her chest. She thought about how she'd remember it.

The morning after they dined at Madeline's and attended a late night screening of Psychokillers 3 at Hillside Plaza Theatre, was the happiest morning of her life.

Ingrid Michaelson's new album, Girls and Boys, is very excellent, you can purchase on iTunes or CDBaby. She's also currently on tour.
