7 or 8. spindly.  braided pigtails.  intent and focused. she raked the black olives from the top of the pizza to the side closest to her, dipped down to the plate not bothering to raise it, and took the olives in.  a subtle softening of expression; her head tilted back a bit, her eyes blinked.  she sighed. and then looked up to see me watching her.  i looked down at my pizza, surveying it with renewed appreciation — like the 7 year old had just demonstrated.  with a smile of anticipation and a intent to focus on the food in front of me, i lifted a piece to my mouth. the bite was the best I’d ever had. my head tilted back a bit.  i blinked. sighed.  and looked over to see her give me a thumbs up.
