100happywords: 91. Homie




There is an art to sharing a small living space with another human being.

It involves being aware of each other’s needs and expectations, preferences and eccentricities. Housemates help create a most precious thing in life: a sanctuary.

So when you find someone who has mastered the art, you hang on to ‘em.

You make them cups of tea when they’re feeling down.

You leave surprise treats for late-night return.

You move with them.
