You know what today is, right? Warning: A negative answer will leave you sleeping on the couch and possibly get murdered. Today I woke up from a nightmare where I was suffocating and about to fall off a cliff. I woke up to see that it wasn’t just a nightmare, it was actually happening. You had moved so close to me in your sleep that you had pushed me almost to the edge of the bed and you had your arms and legs wrapped around me like I was some kind of turon (for those who can’t relate, think spring rolls). Unfortunately for me, you are twice my weight and I couldn’t at first decide whether you were loving me or trying to kill me in your sleep. I opted for the former. It’s a sweet realization that someone loves you, even in their sleep. That they move towards you, hug you and share your pillow.
Exactly 15 years ago today, at around 7:30 am (GMT+8), you first met me in one of the classrooms in the academic building. You thought I was gorgeous. Okay, you didn’t actually say it out loud but I know you were thinking it :-p I saw you first a couple of hours after when we were transferred to our homeroom and I thought you were cute. And then I thought I was lucky because we were seatmates in some of the classes. In hindsight, I think it wasn’t luck, it was fate.
I can’t believe it has been 15 years. Just so I actually know it’s true, let’s review, shall we?
