Friends

DAY 26

TWO JULYS BACK:

Friends never forsake you when you (desperately) need comfort.

Friends offer you a shoulder to cry on.

Friends push and motivate you. They encourage you even if they don’t share your dream/passion.

Friends don’t make excuses.

Friends cheer you up when you’re sad/down.

In short, friends root for you no matter what, but friends wouldn’t hesitate to call you out when you’re in the wrong. They laugh with you, cry with you and stick with you through thick and thin.

NOW:

I’ve been blessed to have some wonderful friends in my life and for this, I am thankful. My friends have never led me astray and they’re a positive influence and light in my life. Friends, you know who you are and I salute you. 🙂

DAY 26

The water was cold and it made her skin shiver. She couldn’t swim, and no one was around to witness what she was about to do, so this was going to be easy. As she lay down in the cold water, her short life flashed before her eyes like a slideshow. There was her beautiful and carefree mother dancing around the immaculate home to an upbeat jazz number. Her father laughing and tapping his feet in time as he read L’Équipe to keep abreast of his favorite football team, Olympique Lyonnais. Her first boyfriend Leon breaking off their relationship because his stiff upper-class parents didn’t approve of him dating a girl who came from no money. The icing sugar on top of the clafoutis: meeting the magnetic and seductive Henry on that eventful day in the Tuileries Garden. Kissing him and holding him was precious and she wouldn’t trade those romantic moments for any form of wealth.

And then she couldn’t breathe.

As the River Seine hungrily claimed her soul, Alicia’s final thought was of how cruel it was to die alone without the one you truly love by your side holding your hand as the soul tries to make its lonely journey home.

DAY 25

TWO JULYS BACK:

Too long to print.

NOW:

Being on hold.

I dislike being on hold with my bank. Last evening, I had to call the bank to clarify something with my account but ‘Your call is being transferred to the next available customer service representative’. I dislike this. Most likely it’s an invisible CSR because almost every time no one is on the other end waiting to take your call (Thank God for pre-recorded female voice messages!)

I waited for a few minutes before the voice comes back to lie to me: ‘All of our customer service representatives are currently serving other customers.’ Erm, for the entire day? I was entertained by an orchestra while I waited patiently. After all that entertainment, she then came back yet again to ‘apologize for the delay. Please stay on the line and a customer service representative will be with you shortly.’

Yeah right! After ten long minutes? She then invites me to ‘leave a voicemail message and a customer service representative will get back to you.’

Now that is torturous.
