All this while the voice that have been talking to me is actually an old acquaintance of mine pre-CUTOUT days. And all this while the sound of her name didn’t trigger anything at all. Until I met her at a meeting recently. Can’t believe my eyes! It was unexpected, surprising with a nice feeling put into the mix.
What was I doing that time?
I don’t know but I think I tried to make up a smooth sentence so I could greet her nicely but I couldn’t. I only remember smiling from ear to ear, and swaying like a walking penguin towards her and gave a big hug.
For a moment, I know that face looked oh so familiar but my brain’s speed was at a low that morning (just downed a hearty breakfast meal before that). I just couldn’t make a connection about where we’ve met. And then…bingo! I do remember her anyway – just hidden deep inside my head.
She was actively involved in the arts scene and I was about 21 then and setting up a designer T-shirt business with the better half. We somehow crossed paths and stayed distant because we only came together when there was a collaboration.
I want to believe that our friendship sort of took a long break before we eventually cross path again after 8 years. Too good to be true but faith is kind
