Thursday morning Heather passed this tag on Halsey and debated picking it up for me. She didn't, sensing I'd have little interest having not found it myself. I'd passed by the same spot an hour earlier, and it had not been there.
Friday morning, running late to a department breakfast I saw and plucked it up mid-stride, unaware that she had a prior relationship to the object. It had been exactly 24 hours since she walked on.
Would it have remained untouched for a day, had she not shown interest? Would it have caught my eye and attention, had it not hers?
