ed. note: today I stumbled upon an old note I wrote elsewhere on FB three years ago. it was in a hard day’s night with someone I remember. not exactly tender moments I’d say, but for sure it’s not something I have forgotten.
Feb 22, 2012, 8:50 PM. thanks to Timehop.
I ended up going to the office after calling half-day sick leave. not sure if it was a good decision I made — hours later it was past seven already. post-meridiem.
“sure, ” I said. “everyone likes to have everything ‘by today’. thanks.”
as it was there was an unusual choke around my throat. then again why should I care?
“after all not many people are concerned with how I feel or if I’m happy anyway.” I continued. “with the situations, lesson learned to me.”
“gosh, you made me feel that I’m heartless about it! but fine, it’s okay. it’s a good reminder to me. sorry, but stay strong. many people, also the selfish, whatever, rely on you.”
“FYI. I do have concern about it.”
a trembled voice after a prolonged silence. that was what she said. that was all for today. over and out.
looking back, the two of us have come a long way ever since. I’d like to think things have been for the better.
