So yes, it’s been the season of meeting many, many people. And I have been getting increasingly cranky, especially with yesterday’s killer schedule of a painful doctor’s visit, meeting 4 different groups of people (fun but blurry), getting bathroom fixtures and assorted textiles and yelling at bohchap sales people. Today was the time for much-needed winding down and I went to visit (finally after dunno how many years of weshouldmeets) my primary school friend Woollendrums. We spent a quiet afternoon eating yummy Eastern hawker food and witnessing her 16-month-old daughter perform impressive baby stunts like recognizing written words and snorting with disdain after a good poop.
A short recap of Sher for my reference:
Mid 1980s: Lower primary days: She cried when the school nurse told her she had to wear glasses. But later, she came to class wearing some funky pink (or blue?) specs and I felt envious and deliberately read in dim light so as to be four-eyed too. Upper primary: we were in the same group and formed some kind of water bottle gang. We sincerely thought our liquid storage units were real people.
Late 80s to early 90s: Wrote letters regularly to each other on cute Japanese stationery. Tried to copy her handwriting which was/is super duper cutesy and neat lor.
1996-1997: We ended up being sort-of JC classmates and I remember she really tried to help me deal with teengage angst by bringing me back to church/God and directly/indirectly helping me find my ground again sort of.
1998-2007: Randomly bump into each other in assorted places. Randomly stumble upon each other’s blogs.
So as much as I have had an overdose of humans, it was nice to meet the GSS (Ger, Sher and Sha) unit.
