i can write a book on the many reasons why.
recounting the moments. recollecting the thoughts.
amidst the perpetual rhythmic cycle lies unanticipated delightful encounters waiting to occur.
there were a number today but only two are eligible for print :)
UNO : “i must tell you something! i dreamt of you last night!!”
“you’re kidding me. are you for real?”
“i dreamt you got married!”
“hahaha..so, was the groom good-looking, then?”
“yah! should be lahhhh…but i wasn’t invited to your wedding leh.”
“well, that’s your dream. cause in reality, you will be at mine.”
TRES: “can i ask you something?”
“sure, go ahead. wassup?”
“i noticed something about you.”

BREATHE. then #2 : i think too much. let’s hear this then think about what to say.
“i saw u yesterday and you were so different. you were so quiet in a big group…i was so surprised…”
i kept my silence as she continued to elucidate her point. i was speechless and mulling over an adequate reply.
in my musing, i realised she was now looking at me with quizzical eyes insinuating – is what i said fact/fiction?
i took a deep breath and replied – “uhm well…you have very good observation skills…”
