Sometimes I look longingly at those couples in the movies who can sleep like spoons all night. My husband and I are too bony and restless for this indulgence.
But I look forward to those extra-cold nights where we nestle in with our hot water bottles at our feet and fall asleep back to back.
I relish the symmetry of our bodies and the heat I can feel flowing between us.
“…if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone?”
