A sound judgment.
Well, you see… it has been all about work, work…
... and more work.
Argh, this vicious cycle.
Maybe I should go on a sabbatical and learn how to take things easier. Also, to take the opportunity to make a few bold, earth-shattering statements, such as:
I am, finally, not here! Take that!
You people cannot live without me!
Things can go wrong without my magic touch!
I will show you just how much I have been taken for granted!
Yes, I am irreplaceable!
Unfortunately, in reality, the world still turns lazily; gravity still holds as usual; the sky still does not turn any more bluer than it should; fresh green grass still smells like fresh green grass; impatient drivers still speed up on purpose although you have earlier indicated to switch into their lanes…
Why, I am just a little speck of nothing, who, on some days…:
“... so I tell you, I was cursing like mad…” I was ranting, and as always, added a few more colourful details than I should.
“Wah, I’d want to hear you curse!” she exclaimed.
“I’ve heard her do that!” he chipped in with a grin. “I tell you ah...”
“Wait – now you people are saying as though I’ve never cursed before…”
“So she used the four-lettered word?” she asked him, ignoring me completely.
Hey, hey – look who is being polite there. I doubt I have ever heard them both utter any swear words either. Wow, now that I think about it – I do have some pretty well-mannered colleagues – those that make model sons and daughters, having achieved strings of A’s and actively attempted all curricular activities in school.
And of course, they are all saner than I am.
Oh, God… not many songs can do this, but this one…
It makes me melt.
Every single time.
