boys in hoodies

The other night I drove to 508 (that's where Mitch, Neil, Kelly and Culann live, in case you didn't know.)  It was dark when I arrived, and as I pulled up, I saw a boy at the end of the block, standing in the middle of the street.  He was wearing shorts and a hooded sweatshirt, his back was to me, and he was talking on the phone.  And all of a sudden it made me wistful, it made me long for college, to live in a community populated by people my own age, to be able to see boys all the time, new ones I hadn't met yet, probably jerks but maybe not, boys who listened to bands I hadn't heard of and boys with new ideas I hadn't thought of yet and boys who smelled good, boys with smiles, boys in hoodies and shorts.  And I got sad a little bit, and thought about how I never meet boys in hoodies anymore, I don't mean for boyfriends, I mean to meet and know and have little crushes or maybe not, boys to keep as friends for a while.  I kept my eye on the boy as I walked up the sidewalk, and just as I turned to go up the walk, something struck me, something familiar, and I realized it was Culann.  As if hearing my thoughts, he turned at that moment, and he smiled and waved, and I smiled and waved back.  It was Culann, and I knew he was on the phone to Carolyn, Carolyn in Baltimore, wonderful sweet beautiful redheaded Carolyn. And I decided that I'm okay after all, and life is good no matter when.
