The little things

I was thinking about this yesterday. A lot of times it's the little things that mean the most and captivate us about characters.

My DH will bring me back Starbucks as a surprise. He doesn't drink coffee.

In the movie Aliens, Hicks lifts the little girl, Newt, up so she can see the console everyone is looking at.

In the book, The Stand, one of the characters leaves candy wrappers everywhere he goes along with signing his name.

In the song, John Deere Green by Joe Diffie, the hero paints a big green heart on the water tower to show his love for his heroine.

Okay, the last one was a big one. LOL.

But it's the little moments sometimes that bring us close to the characters to see what's ticking inside.

What are your favorite little moments in books or film?

May the muses have little moments

So I am not the only one trying to figure out where the questions are.

In the Eve Dallas series, the hero keeps a gray fabric button that fell from the heroine's jacket in his pocket all the time.

Now that is neat Jennybrat! I love those little things.
