ME: Anywhere. How about you?
ME: How about we try to see if there's any nice place on the other side?
ME: Are you crazy? You're smelling Jollibee over there.
ME: No. That was something else you had to do at Jollibee.
ME: Yeah I guess. It's been a long time. Remember when we drove around the city for an hour trying to find a restaurant and we ended up going back to that place down the road from my house?
Yeah, somewhere in our 18-year friendship. Has it really been 18? Well, 15 years of taking care of me til the time he had officially turned me over to my beloved hubby (of 3 years now). So yeah, 18. Pretty much.
ME: I don't know, yours are in a box in my memory chest.
ME: No way! So, how's your baby?
ME: I wish hubby and I can have our own baby too soon. How's your wife?
ME: Yeah, same here. It's all good. He takes care of me. He knows I'm out with you. He said hi by the way. How about her? Does she know you're with me?
We had pizza, fried chicken and spaghetti and diet coke. Then Starbucks.
ME: You still smoke?
ME: Not really. Like the usual, maybe occasionally....socially. Hey, do you need to go back now?
ME: Nah, just wanted something to drink slowly so we can talk some more.
ME: Wow, you still collect those? You remind me of this movie...
ME: Hey, I gave you one for Christmas many years ago.
ME: Okay. Let me call my hubby first.
Hi, mahal. I'm still out. We're at the Comic book shop now. How are you doing? I love you. Hey, can I buy something? ("Go ahead, you still got money?") Yeah, thanks, mahal. I love you.
ME: Come with me, I'll get me the Dancing Queen necklace. Hubby said yes.
ME: You think it's okay to get this?
ME: Thanks. How about your wife? What does she like?
ME: That will be cool.
It was like how it used to be, walking and talking. We checked out the other mall.
ME: You see that? I like the beef in that Korean Place.
ME: You want? Sure!
At the Korean Place...
ME: Let me buy dinner this time. Just buy me coffee later.
ME: I know. I'm always up. Has it always been like that?
ME: Really? Oh yeah huh. You mean I've been that way since forever?
ME: Just buy me the Takoyaki balls then.
ME: Hey, can you have something signed by Manny Pacquiao for my hubby?
ME: That's something I want to try...you know, boxing. But they said, boxing might break my fingers. I don't want that because I play the piano. And I don't want to be all that shaky that I can't draw. Do you still draw?
ME: I stopped sketching for a while. You know my ex burned all the sketchpads I had since third grade right? That really hurt. But I'll try again. My hubby bought me this nice sketchpad so hopefully I can start again.
ME: Really? I made one of you a long time ago too. I'll try to find it.
It was getting late and it was time to go...
ME: Remember when we used to walk here?
ME: Yeah, me too. So, are you going to send me off at the airport?
ME: Why not?
