#01 - Walking

They spend every Saturday morning walking through their neighborhood, hand-in-hand, with matching shoes and smiles on display.

#02 - Waltz

Karen compliments Fred Astaire, but Pam tuts and remarks that Ginger could do it backwards.

#03 - Wishes

On summer nights, they sneak onto the roof and dance under the starlight, only pausing to wish on the first star they see through the city lights that night.

#04 - Wonder

Pam sees the handsome men and beautiful women that give Karen more than a cursory glance, and she can’t help but wonder what she’s doing right since Karen is only ever glancing at her.

#05 - Worry

When Pam is working late in the school’s art studio, Karen demands hourly text messages “because New York is filled with psychos and pervs.”

Karen never really had enough of this in her life, but whenever she watches Pam paint, she finds more than enough.

#07 - Waste/Wasteland

They miss garbage night one week and vow to never miss it again.

#08 - Whiskey and rum

Alcohol burns the back of Pam’s throat, but Karen’s soft lips on her own make up for it.

#09 - War

Who controls the television remote on Thursday nights?

#10 - Weddings

They attend a wedding as a couple and nobody in Pam’s family bats an eyelash, and that’s one of the two reasons Karen smiles during the ceremony (the other is seated next to her).

#11 - Birthday

Karen bakes a cake and burns it, but Pam eats it anyway and pretends it isn’t awful.

#12 - Blessing

While on the phone with her parents, Karen’s father finally says, “I love you, and… tell Pam I say hi.”

Blondes, brunettes, redheads - yeah, Pam has a not-so-secret preference.

The furnace breaks one night in November, but they find heat between them.

#15 - Breathing

Pam worries that Karen works too hard and she can never go to sleep until she hears Karen’s breathing relax, finally.

#16 - Breaking

Pam accidentally smashes an antique music box and cries hysterically, but Karen doesn’t say anything - she just kisses her temple and sweeps up the mess.

#17 - Belief

Pam defends her before she knows why she’s defending her, and that makes Karen love her all the more.

#18 - Balloon

Karen is afraid of balloons, which Pam finds adorable and hilarious.

#19 - Balcony

They sneak away from a boring corporate party to stand together on a balcony in December, holding hands and forgetting the rest of the world.

#20 - Bane

The woman below them plays salsa music at 4am and they’re sure they’ve never hated anyone this much.

#21 - Quiet

Pam never turns on the radio on Sunday mornings because she just likes to listen to Karen breathe for a while.

Sometimes Pam puts ketchup on macaroni and cheese, which both disgusts and fascinates Karen.

#23 - Question

“Do you think it can last forever?”

Karen refuses to have a yellow bedroom.

#25 - Quitting

Pam withdraws from an elective graphic design course and the only thing that cheers her up is when Karen brings out a bottle of vodka and a coloring book.

#26 - Jump

Pam makes a homemade jester costume for a party and Karen can’t help but marvel at how talented she seems to be at damn near everything.

Through an unusual turn of events, they end up at a renaissance fair and are sure they’ll never forget the experience.

#29 - Jewel

#30 - Just

It’s in the quiet moments, while they’re snuggled in a bed that is almost too big, that Pam finally feels okay.

#31 - Smirk

Karen has a special smirk she saves for when Pam awkwardly reacts to random men hitting on her.

#32 - Sorrow

Pam knows there is really nothing she can say or do, so she just hugs Karen tight and hopes it’ll be enough for now.

#33 - Stupidity

Karen completely forgets a Friday Night Date Night and can only manage to say, “I’m an idiot.”

#34 - Serenade

Pam sings in the shower and Karen thinks it’s the best alarm clock she’s ever had.

Sometimes people tell them they’re uncomfortable to approach because they always seem to be in their own snarky little world (and secretly they like this).

Pam blushes when Michael calls to prod her for “sexy” details and hangs up on him every time.

#37 - Soliloquy

“Okay, Pam, deep breath… you can do this.”

I'm definitely planning on writing more. I'm on a KaPam In the City kick lately it seems. I just enjoy writing the little moments.

It was hard to choose, but this was my fave:

Pam wants to know how gay Karen can really be if she doesn’t own a single Jewel CD.

I plan on using this to validate my ownership of a Jewel CD; thank you.
