[a jh thoughtcatalogesque post.]
You called my name – that in itself was.frankly and refreshingly surprising. There have been far and few acquaintances who could ever remember it for 5 mins, much less a year. But shall we say that perhaps you yourself labour under a name that slips as easily from the tongue. It was surprising, but why, I guess I wondered to myself at the silliness of it. After all, you belonged there, and we all knew that. Where else should you be? Still, it did take that long for us to bump into each other. Or shall I say, it was quite astonishing that we managed to do so despite the sea of people, fluctuating schedules, and near ridiculouslessness of it all. And I shook it off and stammered a few embarrassing lines while I tried to recall your name. In my defence, guys are bad at memories, and I am the worst of the lot. But just the name of course, just the name. You wore lipstick! And such an astonishing crimson. Pardon me for my language, you understand that you truly gave me a surprise. Crimson. And it sure did stand out from your pale skin – I remember you were, are, quite pale. I suppose you were swiftly off somewhere, i would have been too if I were you. For in our varied lives, there is still 60 minutes an hour, 24 hours a day and we have plans to fill 25 of them. No we never talked much, that seems like a pity. What do I remember then? Your shy smile? Ladylike yet always hiding off somewhere. It appears that you have a will, a soul, that isn’t quite the quintessential good girl, but I cannot tell what is hiding beneath. Your dresses, were lovely. You always had those dance flats which I was so envious of because you could stuff them into your bag and change to pretty shoes. I dont know if you noticed but the fat woman with the heels – she was such a chore, poor rhthym notwithstanding. You did often seem to be on the run somewhere, which was good. Or bad, depending on how you look at it. You had the phone you hated? It was an impressively advanced phone for that year – one which only a really adventurous adopter would have taken. Astonishing, again. But it wouldn’t work well, I wasn’t surprised. But I guess I would remember you just much for all those really intriguing status messages you had online. It reminded me of when I was younger and discovered the world. I love them alot.
