I have busy the past week and the last few days, I was so sick I was like a floating zombie, sliding from one place to another. I have to admit being sick has taken away all the energy in me. Add that to full-time working, I come home everyday and just crash and die in bed.
I spent the week coming home from work at about 5pm everyday, make a cup of hot drink, change into warm and comfortable clothes and read/reply to emails. Make dinner at 6.00pm, eat dinner at 6.30pm, and watch TV snuggled up in my blanket at 7.00pm, sniffling away. A big mug of hot chocolate while watching TV and talk to Mr Crush until about 9.30pm and die in bed.
That was my routine from Monday to Thursday. On Friday, I finished work at 3.30pm and caught the train into the city. Was meant to meet Mr Crush at 5.00pm in the mall but when I arrived at the Central station, right outside the gate beaming in his perfect smile was Mr Crush! He finished class early and decided to come give me a surprise, so holding a bag of salty liquorice (effing disgusting thing!) he camped outside the gate since 3.50pm (I arrived at 4.00pm).
His family background is Dutch and he lived in northern Europe for a while after high school - that explains his love for salty liquorice - I don't understand why would people eat that. He took 5 mins to convince me to put that nasty thing in my mouth, and not wanting to cross the road until I ate it! Embarrassing..... so I had to eat that disgusting thing.. and I chewed it but it took forever to melt!
I was still sick so we went to this really cool cafe with big leather couch to have a big mug of hot chocolate. He bought me a big chocolate muffin, which we went halves but I couldn't taste anything! At 5.00pm we took the bus to his house. I collapsed on the couch, and he got me pillows and blankets, made me tea, lit the candles and played a DVD.
We made pizza for dinner and had a food fight while we're at it. We ate, had ice-cream and drank hot chocolate again while we finish the movie. We then danced and sang to Glee soundtracks before he dropped me off at a cocktail bar for my friend's birthday drinks at 9.00pm.
I entered the bar and at the table, a girl at the end of the table gave me the biggest wave and went, "AARON!" I gave her the biggest smile and said, "HEY!"... but I don't know who she was until my friend told me. I don't think we've been introduced but I know she attended at least two events I spoke at. Awkward. Then as I sat down, a guy right in front of me gave me a familiar smile, extended his hand and went, "Aaron, long time no see, mate! How you been?" and umm... I don't remember him at all? Until now, I have no recollection of having met him but he knows my name, know where I work and what I do, so clearly we've spoken before. Awkward x2.
After finishing my drink, my sickness was killing me, so I excused myself at 9.50pm, feeling like an ultimate party pooper and went home.
I'm feeling a tad better but I still have a slight runny nose. Not fun.
