Things You Can't Do in a Box

"The trouble with putting people into boxes," He said, "was that most everyone fits into a box of one size or another - but no one ever really belongs in just one box - lots of people can fit into lots of boxes."

She looked at him for a moment, thought of what kinds of boxes She would put Him into and then replied, "I disagree. I think that the trouble with putting people into boxes is that it makes you feel alone and separated from the people you care about."

He stopped sipping his iced latte and put it down on the table. Then, in one swift motion, he stood up and opened up his arms to hug her.

"I don't think we should live in boxes," He said.

And they held hands quietly the rest of their lunch hour - enjoying the Things You Can Do When Someone Won't Put You Into A Box.
