Because I work with words, I often find the written description of things more pleasing than the things themselves. A fresh baguette in person--pleasing. The delicious, crispy, crunchy words "fresh baguette"-- somehow infinitely more satisfying to me. The same goes for clothes; I love descriptions of items far more than the pieces themselves. And a description of today's outfit--cut off jeans, lacy tee, flat sandals--somehow sounds breezier and more put together than I actually felt wearing it. The way in which words trump experience is truest when it comes to "road trip." These always sound fun in print, but in person, when you've been stuffed in a suburu for 12 hours and eaten chex-mix for lunch, it is less delightful.
P.S. DC, here we come!
