Nick Naming

Since I was a kid, I have this thing to nick name my possession. I will nick name every single thing I find special. From stuffed animals to a (selective) friend, from laptop to cars, even from pillows to a boyfriend. Every boyfriend got a special nick name from me and only me who got to call him that way (and of course with special tone as well) 😉 . Yeah, hard to forget a girlfriend like me when you are loved that way. :mrgreen: Lol.

I think I got this habit from my dad. He has special nick names for his daughters, only daughters; me and my little sister. And that nick name stay in the family only. When communicating to outside world, Dad will use our regular name and back home he’ll use the endearment name again. Yet, I guess I expand the habit wider by nick naming all things I find special. 😀

Talking about something fun, there’s something funny about this nick naming. I even still laugh to this day recalling it. Rolling back to when I was single after college, I remember I packed the dashboard and the back of my Hyundai Atoz (call her Lafly) with furry dolls. There were about a dozen and I named each of them. Besides for my own satisfaction, I used the stuffed animals as a preliminary test to my future boyfriend. On a 3rd or 4th date, I’d usually introduced my stuffed animals and how they’re special and unique thus I gave them nick names. Then on the 5th or 6th date, I’d asked test their memory: did they still remember at least 5 names of the dolls or not. :mrgreen: Most of them were like giving me that holly-cr*p-I-didn’t-see-this-coming-I-wished-I-paid-more-attention-earlier expression. 😂 IMO if you’re interested to me, you’d be interested to my details and things related to me too. Lol. Darn, it was so much fun! There were only 2 people passed the test and one of them is my hubby now. 😝

Nick naming is fun, it gives that butterflies and special feeling and shows the real bonding is.

Pilih Sakit Gigi atau Sakit Hati?

Enggak mau milih salah satu dari itu. Sakit semua soalnya. Patah hati itu menyiksa, pengen cepet-cepet selesai aja sakitnya. Sementara sakit gigi itu tak kalah menderitanya. Semua salah aja gitu.

Untung dapat pain killer yang lumayan oke. 1x sehari dosisnya dan ampuh mengurangi sakit. Cuma kalo udah hampir 24 jam, pas mulai memudar obatnya, lumayan juga ya cenut-cenutnya. Modyar :mrgreen:

Sakit gigi ini kemarin menelan korban. Satu temen ngajak bercanda lewat WA, sekalian curhat juga. Udah cerita panjang lebar, cuma gue tanggepin “OK” aja dan dia mulai insecure. Mulai mikir panjang ke mana-mana. Astaga…. Woiiii, sakit gigi iniiii. Untung cepet resolve. Kalo orangnya ngambek, kan susyah gue. Lol.

Ngeri-Ngeri Sedap

Kamu sudah ponton film besutan Bene Dion Rajagukguk; Ngeri-Ngeri Sedap? Saya sekeluarga sudah nonton dari awal-awal launching. Sekeluarga as in bokap-nyokap lengkap sama anak cucunya :mrgreen: Bapak pesan 2 row bangku di bioskop sekaligus. Kami nonton bareng sepulang gereja dan sambil nunggu film-nya mulai, itu Bahasa Batak terdengar membahana dari seluruh penjuru bioskop. Keknya 1 bioskop isinya orang Batak semua deh itu. Huahaha.

Asli, ini film tuh mengharu biru banget. I COULD RELATE WITH ALMOST EVERY ASPECT IN THE MOVIE. Film dibuka dengan soundtrack Attar Didokkon, ini lagu bokap banget pas masih muda. Bokap suka setel lagu ini kalo pagi. Bahkan saya masih ingat nama penyanyinya dulu: Trio Ambisi dan kasetnya berwarna hijau 😀 Hahaha.

You Suppose to Turn 42 Today

My heart aches when I opened our college album and recalling all the memories that comes within.

It hurts badly that I cried.

It hurts knowing that our friendship didn’t have a chance to have further rollercoaster joyful-sadness-exciting-fearfully life experience memories.

It hurts so much that we cannot exchange calls after long tiring days in the office.

It hurts painfully we cannot watch our kids grow bigger together. Basti and Vino will be great buddies just like we are (I am sorry, I still cannot write in past tense. I feel like you are still here with me by soul)

It hurts deeply reminiscing what we have gone through together and thinking what we might could’ve done.

Your mom just texted me this pic of us. The day when we graduated together. A bit blurry but I wanna post it here. I still keep in touch with your mom, Ros. I still keep in touch with your fam.

You are more like a sister to me than a friend, Ros. May you Rest In Peace in heaven. I love you always.

Written accompanied by Run of Collective Soul, one of your fave bad. I miss you badly, Ros.
