Secret

I like to draw smiley faces on cue balls with dry sharpies.  I’m not sure who gave me the habit (family was always meticulous), but it’s always been a private source of joy.  It’s not just making the face, it’s the squeak of the ink-strained tip as I press it to the glossed surface.  Moving the malleable nib in circles for nearly a half hour, the day’s stress melts away from my grateful fingers.
