28th Dec 2007

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.

    hee pinny i’m sure sher would be happy to read this.
    but yes, time is passin’ passin’ passin’ whether we like it or not.
    i guess, if anything, there is always a choice to behave in a childlike manner, no?
