A SMS message appeared on my mobile yesterday. " I am in KL, will be in Penang this weekend, care to meet up, Sharon" at a glance, i was confused who this girl was, KL, Penang, meet up , this weekend, Sharon. When i finally came to my senses, it was my ex girlfriend who just came back from Amsterdam, excitedly i pressed my handphone keypad and these words manifested" ok my dear"
In the evening, another SMS message came "u r having bday this weekend right 26th, " so i was thinking, i was happy for the thought she had for me, man my ex could still remember my birthday, what a privilledge. Just when i was about to tell my wife about the news, another massage came "dinner on me", cheekily i told my wife, that this weekend i would be celebrating my birthday with someone special that's my ex, she went like "ha, ok"Anyway, my wife knows my ex, they have met, but to take care of my wife's feeling, i told her no matter what i would bring her and my boys with my ex this weekend to celebrate my birthday.
She was my ex like 20 years ago, we were young adults then, but i am glad, we could still maintain this kind of platonic friendship, i am happy for her that she is happily married with good career, and she is happy for me that i am happily married withe two boys too.
I guess in life, sometimes it is good to walk down memory lane once a while and feel the moments you once enjoyed with that somebody, the feeling of nostalgia, and the memories, doestn matter if it is sweet or bitter, then we have to come out to reality, and acknowledge that those are the bygones, no points dwelling in it.
So, this weekend (26th of october to be exact), i will be the luckiest man becase i will be celebrating my birthday with the one that i once loved and the other one that i love from now till eternity.
P/S. My ex was great, my wife is the greatest
