Evelyn: Spending the weekend floating around as a volunteer therapist, doing my thing... the exhaustion moving its way in... I messed up my alarm, and in my rush read our word and ran... then doubted myself about the word I had encountered while dazed and still sleepy (I messed up crowded/gathering before)... Yet, in the thick of it, I found some friends warming in the sunshine, coupled and content, and they were willing to share a love bite - the best kind of bite besides food... and that worked just fine for me. 

Monica: I took the word literally today and could only think of an apple with a bite taken out of it, an image that recalls the story of a forbidden fruit and that first bite that changed everything. Then Evelyn called me on her drive home and we got to talking about how cute Justin was when he was a baby, how I nicknamed him cookie face because of his two enormous chocolate chip eyes, and how one time, I was playing at "gobbling" him up and I bit him. The poor kid wailed in pain. I was horrified, but I just couldn't help myself. He was too temptingly chompable.

  1. Evelyn,
    That is the image that flashed into my brain between the time that I saw the word and the time that your images loaded.
