Get It Done

The date sucked. Sigh...

Moving on...

It's April tomorrow. Last year, April was such a good time for me. Specifically, 10 days of April. The Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair.

I was posted there to man the company booth. Guess who else was there? Yup. Him. Gosh, I haven't blogged about him for the longest time. #1 Crush. Sigh.

He was there for 10 days as well. We were kinda inseparable. Lunches together. Sometimes dinner. The occasional bowling or karaoke. He even cooked dinner at my place one night. He finished his shift early so he'd wait at my booth until I was done. Altogether now... awwww, so sweet...

Is he a good cook? Sure. But he has a tendency to overuse the turmeric thus turning my kitchenware yellow. Took me months to get that stain out. Hehhehe.

It was a great time and I missed those days when we were quite close. Nowadays, I am lucky if I get a YM message once a month... sigh...

Okay, so we were chatting in one of those rare moments that we chatted... and he asked if I was manning the booth at the Book Fair again...

I am touched that he remembered. Unfortunately, things happened and I am no longer involved in events, so I won't be working at PWTC this time around. I told him that and I also mentioned that I missed hanging out with him like last time (it's been almost six months now... last I was with him was watching Wall-E...) and that I had a good time during the Book Fair.

I remember having a fit when a friend of mine expressed interest in going to the book fair to see him and hoping that he'd get some action from #1 Crush. #1 Crush showed me the message and told me that he doesn't know who it was. I was quite hysterical and I blurted out, in front of #1 Crush, that #1 Crush was mine and that the friend had no right doing what he's doing.

Can't recall what his reaction was coz I wasn't looking at him. Fuming mad. He just said that he did not plan to meet the guy and he was not going to reply to the message. I thought I went over the line but #1 Crush did not stop seeing me afterwards so I guess it was alright.

Anyway, I told #1 Crush that it was too bad I am not working the Book Fair and that we could have hung out. He pffft my statement and said that we could still hang out coz my office is near PWTC anyway. Yes, I could not stop smiling.

But I know how these things goes. I'd be all hyper and happy but it would end up horribly as in he'd be too busy for me or he'd simply forget. I am prepared for anything. I haven't seen him in 6 months, why should it be any different now right? Well, now he's so near to me... sigh...

Your story was extremely touching. Your expressiveness demonstrates what an incredible connection you had with this other person and I can sympathize and relate to every word.
