used to be

I was doing some spring cleaning today with Emily, when I saw a rather old Chinese New Year greeting card inside my personal deposit box. Not having any recollection of how it got there, I decided to open the card up and check out why was it so important that it was given a special place inside that box.

It was a card from Emily. Sent through snail mail to me many years ago when we’re still teenage lovers. Here’s what it said:

Dear Michael,
Perhaps knowing and understanding you is the best thing that has ever happened in my life.

Regards, Emily

I almost had a stroke, fidgeted a little, before turning to Emily and laughed squarely at her…

Me : “Hahahahhhh kanineh you! What was wrong with you? Hahahhhhh!!” [throws her the card]

Emily : -_-”

Me : “Hahhhahhh!! You should check it out dear.. hahahhh!!”

Emily : [reluctantly opens up the card] “OMG!! Ewhhhhh!! I’m getting all the goosebumps already!!”

That was an understatement. You should have seen her expression when she said that. It’s definitely more than goosebumps.

Amazing isn’t it? You look back at things that you did many years ago, it makes you want to scold yourself – what the fuck was I thinking? It happens all the time. It is as if you were comatosed during that dark period of your life and your biological body got possessed by some really mean ass demon that would do sohai things that you wouldn’t even dreamt of doing…

And now, after time has healed your spiritually unsound life, much to your horror, you start to consciously discover one after another horrifying facts about your past misdeeds, which you don’t even remember of doing…

This is so fucking scary man…

    vic – When you’re 30 or older, your heart will solidify into something hard… and it’ll take much much more to melt it…

    souplad – ;)

    sooi2 – That’s what I’m trying to say here. We’re all in a comatose of our very own past, and would wake up sometime in the future fascinated all about it.

    titoki – Elehhh, you also drama queen wut… with all those monochrome cam whoring pics and all that… tiu ler…

    hming – Wheee! It’s really really fun!

    oliviasy – Well, part of it. The main thing that keeps a relationship strong in the 21st century would definitely have to be money. Moolah. Gold. It’s sad, but it’s a fact.

    Relationships where you can tease the other person are the best kind ‘cos it means you trust each other. Really!
