habitual (adj).

12b6408c8fe6bd9b0c5840124558ff01It is the routine that we have found that I like best: that I make the bed and you make me coffee, that you know I don't like rosemary and I won't put cucumbers on your sandwich, that I scratch your back and you brush the hair from my forehead as I'm falling asleep. It is the crawling into bed at night, creaky and tired, strategizing about the succession of errands we will knock off the list tomorrow. It is the intimacy of the mundane that seems the most poignant and significant.
