Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

Kwang-soo ya!
This was harder than I thought .. thank you for all the laughs and thank you for making Running Man the highlight of my week for the passed 11 years.

You did well, you did so so well and you deserve all the happiness in the world ❤

Okay.. now I’m going to go rewatch the episode and cry a bit more!

Who is going to do all the PPL now?!

I can really just imagine him sitting like this on Running Man filming days and not knowing what to do with his life anymore!

Running man won’t be the same without him and I’m going to miss him so much!

I mean, it’s Kwang-soo, it’s our LEE KWANG SOO!!!

Our eternal Maknae, our Girafe (if he says that’s how you spell “Girafe” then that’s how you spell it, okay!)..

He always brought so much to this show and knowing how much he loves it just makes it harder to accept 😭

I was crying every time they looked at him or teased him or touched his head!

So for the last few weeks I’ve been preparing myself for this week’s episode of Running Man, and I was telling myself that it was okay and that I wasn’t going to cry but I’m a proud Cry-baby so that didn’t work and I wasn’t prepared, not even one bit 😭💔

      I didn’t watch it that night for that exact reason, still gets me very emotional, this one is going to take a lot of time to get over!

        I’ve only started watching since a couple years ago, basically since Gary left, but I was still sad since I grew so attached to everyone together! You could tell the hyungs were trying to stay strong, but Sechan crying made me cry though since he is usually so goofy. It’ll definitely be weird for a while.

Okay, so when my Maknae sister was 10 she gave me a band-aid and “For your pain!” she said, she had written that in English on the band-aid herself and had drawn a little heart next to it. I thought it was the cutest thing ever so I kept it in my bag and never used it.

Last year, on one of my first dates with SNG (fourth actually!) I accidently hurt his hand and got him a cut in between his thumb and index finger (I went for a handshake, I don’t know why I did that, he was surprised because he wasn’t expecting me to do that and I was surprised because I wasn’t expecting me to do that either. It got very awkward and my head went: “Make it quick, shake his hand and pull your hand fast!”, so I went to do exactly that and my index finger dug into his hand, it bled so much that I was mortified and I wished me dead). I always carry a little emergency kit with me in my bag but that day I had changed into a smaller bag in which my emergency kit didn’t fit. I kept apologizing to him and he kept saying that it was okay and that it didn’t even hurt (Liar! It left a scar, he has it till today!).

For the rest of that day I felt so guilty about it and I couldn’t stop staring at his hand. I did have my sister’s band-aid with me but it was too precious to give to some guy I barely knew (hehe!). At the end of the day, he walked me to my car and caught me staring at his hand so he told me again that it was okay and that I should forget about it. I hesitated A LOT but my guilt won and I gave him that band-aid and told him to put it himself because, yeah, I wasn’t going to touch him after what I did, he laughed but said thank you.

Today SNG asked me to get him something from his wallet and I have a rule of not touching people’s wallets (Yes, even his! He thinks it’s hilarious that I look away when he pays for things.. but I feel like I shouldn’t look 😅), so I asked him if he’s giving me full permission to do that and he laughed at “full permission” but “Yes! Just go!”, so I did and guess what I found? YES! THAT BAND-AID!!!

I literally ran to him with it and went: “YOU KEPT THIS!” and he laughed. He laughed so much and then got so embarrassed like I just saw something I shouldn’t have (see, that’s why I don’t touch wallets!).

– Give me that!
– Why didn’t you use it?
– [Still all red and embarrassed]: I don’t know.. give me!
– You kept it!
– I did.. [in a tiny voice]: it was the first thing you gave me! [Then]: I gave you chocolates and sweets.. and flowers you didn’t take, and you gave me a cut and a band-aid!

He’s forever holding a grudge against me for those flowers!

Also, WHY SO ADORABLE?

So SNG got covid.. yeah!

A few nights ago he got really sick and feverish and we went to the hospital and got tested, his results came out positive and mine came out negative. The second he found out about that he was like \”You, ten feet apart!\”, and then he told me he\’d go and quarantine in one of those quarantining facilities which I thought made no sense but he said that if there was any chance of me still not getting it he wouldn\’t want to risk it. So he called the facility, booked himself a room and drove himself there all in the same day.. there\’s your noble idiot, Beanies!

It\’s been 4 days now and he says he is okay but he doesn\’t sound so okay, he says there is no fever just a nasty cough which he was told is going to stay with him long after all the other symptoms are gone. He wants me to stop sending him food because \”They feed us here, you know!\”, and he also wants me to tell my mom and my mother-in-law to stop sending him these \”immunity boosting\” juices because \”they taste terrible\”.  I asked him how he is with our first time apart and he said he woke up this morning and burst out laughing because he remembered what I did last week (I woke up and saw two hands that were not mine and not his and that made me jump out of bed so fast that it almost gave him a heart-attack, turned out they were my hands, they were just so tanned I couldn\’t recognize them.. yeah, I do things like that sometimes 🙈), so I told him at least living with me has been entertaining so far!

We still don\’t know where he got the virus from and we don\’t know how I didn\’t get it too, I don\’t understand how\’s that possible but being high-risk they\’re all just glad that it worked out this way. I\’m still quarantining at home though, my sisters offered to come stay with me, I said no just to be safe, I don\’t have any symptoms, a little headache, yes, but that\’s probably all the stress. None of us is vaccinated yet, only our parents, because you have to be in a certain age-group to get a vaccine here, but they\’ve told us August, so hopefully soon, I can\’t wait to be done and over with this!

So yeah, 4 days down 6 more to go, pray all goes well and pray he recovers fast, I might be joking and laughing about this but it actually is kind of terrifying.

Stay safe and healthy Beanies, and get the vaccine if it\’s available, and you can and are eligible for it.

    Hoping SNG gets well soon. Don’t stress too much Azzo, just pray.
    And btw my sister’s entire family got Covid and not her. She’s also high risk and it was her unscientific guess that it may be because of some meds that she takes, don’t believe that though.

    Also, you take care of yourself, eat properly and get some sleep, because when we are stressed and exhausted there are more chances to get sick.

    2nd, i legit was wondering what artist SNG is short for then it clicked that it’s Azzo’s post – so it’s DB’s own star couple. Hehe..

    3rd, not recognising your own hands?? I swear you’re coming straight from the land of romcom drama-heroines!

      Will you believe me if I tell you that it wasn’t the first time? I’ve actually done it before, and that time I jumped with a scream so loud it woke up the whole house, my parents called me crazy 😅

      People around us started getting it so it all felt like it was just a matter of time, but we were so careful 💔

      He might come home to a totally new me, too. I’ve never been one of those people who cut their hair out of stress but I’m considering it now, if I do then that will be the biggest shock of his life, he’ll probably not even notice the new layout!

      Thank you, bbstl ❤

So, here’s a story!

They met when they were 18. She was an international exchange student and he became her first friend.

With days they became closer, he fell in love with her, she didn’t. She asked him if he could stay friends with her and he said yes, he tried but he couldn’t.

Four years later, on their graduation day, he told her that he never stopped loving her and that it was too hard for him to stay friends, knowing his feelings weren’t going away, knowing her feelings weren’t going to change.

She cried that day, he cried that day. She apologized for not reciprocating his feelings and he apologized for the same.

They went their seperate ways.

Another four years later, he worked on an international event as a coordinator and his counterpart on the overseas project-team  happened to be her. Yes!

They got to talking, reminiscing about old days, catching up. She told him she was engaged, he told her he was too. He lied. He got nervous.

She flew over to him for the event. They joked, they laughed, they had a great time and then he told her he wasn’t really engaged, he didn’t want her thinking he wasn’t over her, he didn’t want things getting awkward. She asked him if he was really over her, he said no.

Things did get awkward.

Another two years. He runs into her at a client’s company, he’s surprised and asks what she is doing here, she tells him she’s got a job here and she’s applied for residency.

They end up working together, a lot of meetings happen, a lot of coffee-dates happen, and they’re laughing again, they’re friends again. He learns that she broke off her engagement and he realizes he’s still in love with her. He doesn’t tell her this time, he’s too scared to tell her this time.

Days go by, a whole year goes by and he’s miserably and irrevocably in love with her, and he can do nothing about it but complain to his friend. His friend tells him to try for one last time, and he rejects the idea with “what if it doesn’t work out?”.
“Then it’s just not meant to be” the friend says, “but..,” he adds, “what if it does?” 

Today they danced their first dance as husband and wife on Otis Reddings’ “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and guess who was all chocked up trying to hold back tears? MY HUSBAND! THAT FRIEND!

This guy is his bestest friend and this was so very emotional for him, I mean, I was bawling my eyes out, everyone who knew the story was too (which is everyone attending – strictly family and friends) but he was there from day one.

– Why are you looking at me like that?
– You want to cry, don’t you?
– I don’t!
– You want to cry!
– I don’t!
– You’re looking at them like a proud dad, you totally want to cry!
– [covers his eyes with his hand, shoulders shaking]
– Are you crying?
– [eyes still covered]: I’m laughing!
– Why?
– [laughs some more]: because you’re a fool!

Now he wants to take full credit for the wedding happening because of his famous “what if it does” line, LOL!

        I was just thinking that, it could turn into a Taiwanese romcom of near misses and the male lead could come off as a Nice Guy. We’d have to be very careful about how we wrote it.

            SNG and I were talking about this a while back and I remember telling him that I felt it was wrong of her to ask the guy to be her friend when she knew how he felt and it was equally wrong for him to agree to it knowing how she felt, and SNG said that none of this would’ve ever happened had he said no that day and sometimes things are just meant to happen. Like, he wasn’t trying to stay hung up on her all of these years, he just didn’t find anyone else, and she wasn’t purposely trying to come back into his life, she was just as much surprised to run into him everytime!

Hello Beanies, how are you all? How is life? I hope you’re all doing good and, those of you celebrating Eid, I hope you had a happy one and a blessed month of Ramadan.

It’s been hard, honestly, to feel any sort of joy these days with everything that’s going on in the world, there’s just been this heavy depressing energy everywhere and it all feels so wrong, and it might be hard to believe it right now but good still exists and kind people do, too.

Today, SNG and I were out on a walk trying to shake off the bad mood we were in and this lady, sitting on a bench, alone, smiles and gestures at us to go over to her. She offers us some water and some very questionable-looking candy, we take the water and we politely decline the candy. She asks us if we’re married, we tell her we are, she asks us how long it’s been and we tell her it’ll be 8 months in 3 days (which WOW!), and she’s so very happy about it that it makes us happy. She calls us newly-weds and she congratulates us and goes on wishing us a blessed married life and she’s being so sweet that I’m about to cry. I mean, she doesn’t know us and she could’ve easily ignored us, she had no reason to be kind to us but she chose to, and it only took her a few minutes but it made our whole day. Really, it made such a difference and the shift in SNG’s mood after that was everything, I also think it had something to do with her calling him “pretty” but he denies it.

– She called you pretty!
– She did?
– Yeah, act like you didn’t just get all red in the face when she did!
– [laughs]: She called you pretty too, you know!
– Yes, she called me pretty once, she called you pretty FOUR times!
– You counted?
– Of course, I did, pretty boy!
– [laughs again]: No! Just.. no, please!
– Oh, you don’t like that? Pretty guy? Pretty man? What is it?
– My God, shut up! [Changes the subject]: give me your hand!
– Why?
– Just give me it!
– [Puts a questionable-looking candy in my hand]: I stole it for you!
– Stole it? She probably slipped you one because you’re so pretty!

Yeah so, choose to be good beanies, choose to be kind, make that effort, I promise it’s worth it!

Now, can someone tell me if this is edible?
Kidding.. we’ve already had it, this is the wrapper (it was double-wrapped!!) it’s coffee flavored and it made SNG regret not stealing more (He should be in jail for everything he’s “stolen” so far but please no one tell on him, LOL!)

So for the last few days I\’ve been having really weird dreams and yesterday I had a nightmare to which I woke up and went back to sleep and then I had a dream involving some of you beanies so I\’m going to tell it to you.

In the dream I\’m throwing a house-warming party and you\’re all invited, I don\’t know what happens but you guys just appear. @kudoran calls to tell me she\’ll be late but @bbstl, @ally-le, @leetennant @ndlessjoie are here (if you\’re wondering, LT and mugyuljoie look like their little profile pics.. Ally looks like herself and bbstl has a human body -wearing a pink dress with white polka dots- and a cat\’s head)

I ask them where everyone else is and they tell me that no one else is coming, I get upset and tell them that we made so much food.

\”We?\” LT asks.
\”Yes!\” I say \”SNG helped!\”
\”What did he make?\” She asks.
\”Sandwiches!\” I tell her and she laughs.
She laughs so hard like that is the funniest thing she\’s ever heard.

Then mugyuljoie comes holding this chocolate cake and asks who made it, I tell her he made that cake too and she falls over herself laughing.

\”I\’m going to try it!\” Ally says and before I could get her a fork she digs into it with her hands.

\”Can we keep her?\” I hear him say so I turn to look at him and he\’s holding bbstl who\’s turned into a white cat wearing a pink party hat.

\”Put her down!\” I tell him, \”That\’s bbstl!\”

I\’m getting so mad and frustrated at all of this, LT and Mugyuljoie won\’t stop laughing, and Ally is getting chocolate all over our white sofas and bbstl, the cat, is snuggling with my husband!

I\’m overwhelmed and about to cry when KdramaAhjumma @suriyana-shah walks in with her twin daughters attached to her sides. I\’m surprised and I tell her that they told me no one else was coming and she says she came because she had to bring me a house-warming gift. I look at Ally and ask her why she didn\’t bring me a gift and she tells me that bbstl, the cat, is her gift!

KdramaAhjumma interrupts us and tells us that she is in a hurry and she needs to give me my gift before she leaves. \”Give me your hand!\” she says and it makes me smile because SNG says that to me when he wants to surprise me with gifts, I look up and it\’s him (KdramaAhjumma disappears), \”Give me your hand!\” he says and I give him my hand and he gives me..  an .. egg!

I\’m confused and I want to ask him what this means but I don\’t get to because @kudoran arrives and bbstl, the cat, gets scared and attacks us and the egg falls and breaks.

I wake up. The end.

No one try to make sense of this dream, let\’s leave it to whatever it is.. but @bbstl, I think, you need some explaining to do here, you were getting a bit too cozy with him 😒

            How to make a cat stop wiggling their cat eyebrows?
            See, I’m not good at this!

            @azzo1 Well, there’s no way to stop a cat from wiggling its eyebrows. You learn to live with a cat totally on its own terms! But if it happens, this will be the best “conception dream” ever. Quite different than the kdrama dreams of a dragon or a tiger, etc. 😁 I think I’d stay away from chocolate cakes for the time being 🍰

    (that’s consistent with myself getting late on DB for SNG story, even in your dream it happens 🥺)

      Probably that’s why .. you stay true to yourself, Kudo!

      Don’t.. don’t make sense of it but do keep me in your prayers, the creepiest thing happened to me yesterday, some old man knocked on my car window so I thought he needs help or something, I pull the window down and he goes: “Be careful!” and leaves. I swear I got chills, and I’m really not getting very good dreams these days (except for the beanie dream!), I haven’t told anyone about it, not even SNG, so if I disappear, it’s probably that old man 😅

        I usually don’t remember my dreams (and the few times when it happens, it’s a weird story ^^’)
        stay safe, take care and be careful (but not from an old man this time =P)

        “you stay true to yourself, Kudo” err, not sure I’m happy with myself on that , the chocolate cake though x) !
        ps : untrustworthy piece of advice, I’ve been reading a short story of Poirot before going to bed lately, yep reading about murders but sleeping all good, maybe give it a try hehe

      Hi Azzo 😀 , a little message to say hi , hoping you and your relatives are fine. Spring has come here, very nice to have some good sunlight but I guess you don’t miss sunlight where you live ^^’.
      Shamelessly sharing another invite to discord (please come one day, if you need some music reco’ or just to listen to music 😉 or to see beautiful pictures shared (flowers, food, mountain, snow,…). I realized I’m checking DB less often now every 2 weeks or so , oops .
      I saw the news about LKS leaving RM *hug* I know you watch the show every week.
      Have a nice day , take care Azzo <3

        Hi Kudo ❤
        We’re doing good, thank you. How about you and people on your side?

        Sadly, we don’t have spring, we skip directly to summer which means lots and lots of sun and 45+ degrees, I’m melting over here, LOL!

        You know, I’m seriously considering joining discord now because it might be easier to catch up with you guys, I’m a lot less active on DB (last time I was here it was March) and I really don’t want to lose touch with everyone. I’ll definitely let you know if I want to join sometime soon!

        I heard about Kwang-soo and it broke my heart, he is my favorite 💔😭 Of course, his health comes before everything but I’m already dreading his last episode!

        Thank you for asking, kudo, means a lot, I hope you’re doing great and are happy and safe!

          hi Azzo 😀 !!!
          Glad to read about you 🙂 .
          My family and I are fine, thanks ^^ , some even got 1st shot of vaccine (as for me I have to wait till June or a bit later , I’m not in the age range concerned yet )

          Fighting with those hot temperature 🥵 . For the moment we’re good here, we’ll wait and see if we’ll have hot wave or not this summer.
          Here’s a discord invitation (I think it’s valid only for 24hour) , I’ll just drop some everyday this week 😋. (it’s an invite to the Cdrama server , where I hang out the most, it’s chaotic, lovely and funny server 🙂 )
          https://discord.gg/bHPQpKzA

          Please come Azzo, even without spending lots of time on discord you’ll see many Beanies that are not active anymore.
          (also whispers if you want to see my cooking attempt, I’m sharing some pictures from time to time, made some dumplings yesterday 🙂 )
          (whispers again if you want to have book reco’ or talk about them, there’s a server for books 🙂 . I have two reco’ for you , I think you’ve already read the first one (a) but still sharing just in case, it’s both fiction about World War II .
          a) The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
          b) White Chrysanthemum by Mary Lynn Bracht

          Also my singing offer is still valid 😉
          (if you join discord , by default your status is visible, you can turn it to invisible. When I joined many Beanies said hi , you coming will make some welcome party, be prepared for the love 😘😘😘)
          (whispers there’s private message option on discord 😉 (said the one that used it only once or twice 🙄😂))

            Good to know your family members are getting vaccinated, Kudo, and that you guys are all safe, the same is going on with my family members too, hoping they all get vaccinated soon (me too, I was told to wait till August for the vaccination!)

            Yes, too hot here.. but we’ve been hearing news of some rain so hopefully we’ll get some this weekend!

            I will, I will, I promise! You know what, I might as well join you this weekend, since I don’t have anything planned and I could try and discover the discord community (Though really you will have to teach me everything I have no idea what it is and how it works 😂) so don’t drop the invitations everyday, just maybe on Thursday, if you could of course, and I will join you then, hehe!

            Ooh, I love historical fiction , one of my favorite genres ( I think I told you this!) and yes I read the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society and I loved it, they’ve also made it into a movie which I haven’t watched because I’m too scared they’ll ruin it for me!

            I haven’t read White Chrysanthemum but I’ll try to find it and I’ll tell you what I think about it once I read it.

            Kudo just know that me joining discord will mostly be for your singing offer, just too tempting to decline, LOL!

            Just leave some songs you’d like to hear (be careful not to share songs you love , I’m singing mumbling hehe) , possible languages includes English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese (and my mother tongue even though I don’t sing that much into it *oops*)

    I haven’t shared this with my husband yet, but he would say your dream was spot on. I think you know me. I’d totally be the first person to eat chocolate cake and I HATE TO SHARE. And I’m so sloppy, so getting it on a white couch sounds like par for the course too. And why do you have a white couch anyway!!!!???? When you guys have kids, that will be the first thing that gets ruined, 😂 . I think I was just breaking it in for you 😜. And yeah, that dream is totally about that. Let me be the first to congratulate you! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇

      I would totally spill coffee on that white couch. And ally, SHARE THE CAKE. Hmmph.

      And yeah, that was definitely what that dream was about.

        Coffee is not allowed on the white couch.. he had to give up “coffee on the couch” for keeping the couch so!

        And no, stop it.. though I know it can’t be.. I’ll still start freaking out!

      You’re telling me the dream you is actually you? You are the sloppy kind? I guess, I know you better than I thought I did!
      Also, that couch was his idea, he was so passionate about it so I let him have it!
      And no, really, it can’t be.. just.. way too soon! That dream is about us getting a cat, he’s been begging for a cat for a while now so I think I’m just going to go and get him a cat!

        Ah. So that’s why the cat batted at the egg and caused it to break. 🤔 verrrry interesting. When you get the cat, I will send it a pink party hat.

        Sounds good, get a cat. You should get a white one because otherwise, your white couch will always have hair on it and it’ll drive you crazy. All my furniture is leather except for a chaise that has outdoor upholstery that’s cream colored that I’ve gotten everything that’s been spilled on it out. I’m really good at stain removal being the klutz I am. 😂. My husband married me for a lot of reasons, but gracefulness was not one of them. 😂

        1

          If we’re getting a cat (haven’t really told him about it yet, I was very firm with my “No”, I want to be sure about this first) then it has to be a white one! A lot of our furniture is in light colors.. we clearly didn’t think this through!

          You need to teach me some of your stain removal hacks, you know, for the future! I’m still a little surprised, I didn’t think you’d be the clumsy type, LOL!

            Vinegar, water, baking soda and dish soap will get our 99% of fabric stains on colored fabric. Bleach for whites. Alcohol for ink. That will get you through most your life—lol.

            Oh, white is also good for you from the standpoint of not seeing the hair the cat sheds! Which will probably happen, although I have a 90% non shedder right now, just luck.
            azzo and SNG are getting a cat! Hooray for the cat!!! 😺

    That’s a weird albeit sweet dream I guess lol. I believe that dreams are usually about what is going on in your subconscious and real life and what you are thinking or bothered about much more than it being a sign of the future. Even if I know people study dreams and it may hint towards any future happening I still think it’s a lot about what’s already happening in our minds. So yes I guess you need to get a cat only if you wish.

    Hm. Interesting.

    What raised my eyebrow (one only — it is a skill) are:

    1. @leetennant is there in your dream and she’s LAUGHING. LT doesn’t laugh, she’s indifferently blank-faced, it helps to keep HIM at bay — you know, her stalker…Lee Min Who.

    2. Your Oppa isn’t in your dream. Poor Oppa. Bye, Oppa.

    3. @bbstl is Catwoman. I suspected she wasn’t human many times. Her posts are ahem, littered with intricate symbols — convulated paws and disturbing cat faces which, on hindsight, pointed to her cattish? catlike? non-human links.

    The old man creeped me out. Eek.

        I’m fine, thank you 🙂 , and you ?
        “you’ve been quiet recently” I’m actually checking the fanwall quite often (every 2 days or so , leaving upvotes and sometimes comments) , however I’m just posting final thoughts for shows I’ve finished as for now, the post for Dae Jang Geum took me quite some time 🥴
        On the other hand, I’m also trying to check discord (but even there I’m just making some short cameo ^^’), share some reactions for my variety shows even if it just means a few lines ^^’

About a week ago I was looking for something sweet to watch and Youtube just happened to recommend Thirty but Seventeen to me so I thought I\’d give it a try and I\’m so glad I did.

I loved this show!

It was cute and funny and nothing was forced or rushed or dragged, no grand plot twists, no great conflicts, no baddies. It was slow-paced and I don\’t mean that in a bad way, just that it took its time to develop the characters and what it took for them to grow into the people they become. The characters learned to mature, to open up, to let go and to smile again, and it was all so very heartwarming to watch.

It was lovely from start to finish and it left me smiling and feeling all happy ❤

Also, this means a mini-spam (my first in ages, LOL).
Enjoy!

I grew up in a family of romantics where falling in love has always been celebrated like an achievement, where tales of love are told, poetry in the name of love is written and songs of love are sung.

Yet that kind of love, to me, seemed like such a foreign concept, so far away from who I am, unattainable. I\’m good with checklists, guidelines, rules, and I was told that love doesn\’t follow those. I\’ve read that love meant change and chaos and those things absolutely terrify me. They said love is the language of words, new vocabularies, and I enjoy my silences.

The thought of it was so unsettling that I told myself I would never do it, I would never let it happen to me.. I was different, it was not me, it didn\’t suit me.

But then .. he came along.

If you ask me why I said yes to him that day on the 25th of December 2019, I would tell you, in complete honesty, that I did it to make him stop looking at me. I actually, really, just wanted him to stop looking at me. Not because I hated it, because, I realized, no one has ever looked at me the way he did and it made me feel things I couldn\’t understand. When beanies were making jokes of Christmas dates and hot chocolate, I was literally panic-googling how to do this (Yes, I needed a how-to list and no, it didn\’t work!).

\”It\’s okay!\” he said, when I told him about my rules and boundaries, about my \”do\’s\” and \”don\’ts\”, and about my \”can\’ts\” and \”won\’ts\”, I was not going into this unprepared, I told myself. \”It\’s okay. I understand!\” he told me.

When he first confessed I asked him how he knew, I wasn\’t doubting how he felt, I just needed to know if I felt the same. After all, I made my list and I needed to know if I could tick all the boxes (call me a fool but how else would I know?). I was not prepared for his answer, I didn\’t expect that, nothing on my list was ticked. I cried that night, I cried a lot, and when he couldn\’t figure out why I was crying I told him about my stupid list. He laughed then and asked me a series of questions, all to which my answer was yes. \”It\’s enough!\” he said, \”It really is!\”, then he asked if he could hug me and I said yes to that, too. 

He taught me that there are no set guidelines for love, it isn\’t hard, it doesn\’t have to fit a mold, it isn\’t same for everybody. No two people translate it the same, no two people feel it the same. He said love could mean chaos to some but to some it could be the order they need. And he told me that words are overrated and silences shared are the best way to love.

I still think I don\’t know much, I still wonder if I\’m doing it right.. but there is no right way he tells me.. so I guess, I\’ll just fumble my way through love.

Love, February.

So.. my niece didn\’t really like SNG before, she didn\’t like that I left my parents\’ home to go live with this new person who is \”strange\” and is \”unnecessarily\” tall. She would give him her best stink-eye whenever she saw him and once (or twice) she actually growled at him (he died at that and he thinks that\’s the cutest thing someone that tiny can ever do!)

Recently, she\’s been coming over a lot (for school purposes) and she finally started warming up to him. The other day they had a bonding moment (at my expence), I don\’t know what exactly happened as I missed the start of it all but when I got there he\’d made popcorn and they\’re watching something on his phone.

Me: what are you two watching?
Him: how to make chocolate popcorn.
Her: it looks easy, next time make me chocolate popcorn!
Him: I will!
Her: you always give Azzo chocolate?
Him: I do.
Her: you never give me any!
Him: you don\’t like me.
Her: Azzo likes you?
Him [laughs]: Yes. A lot, a lot!
Me: I never said a lot.. a lot!
Him [looks at me, says nothing]
Me: what? I never did!
Him [smiles]: why are you blushing?
Me: I\’m not blushing!
Him: you are blushing! [Looks at her]: she\’s blushing!
Her: she is very red! [Looks at me]: you are red like inside of a watermelon!
Him [laughs]
Her: She is like an apple!
Him [still laughing]
Her: She\’s not like tomatoes, I don\’t like tomatoes, tomatoes are too round! [Takes a moment to think]: You are too tall!
Him [dies laughing]

He kept laughing at everything she said and because of that she kept saying whatever that came to her mind. To conclude it all, I\’m red like red socks and he\’s tall like a sleeping girrafe (don\’t ask me, I don\’t get it either!).

Later I asked her if she liked him now and she said no. Then she told me maybe just a little bit and went: \”Not a lot a lot like you!\”

Love, February.

    Unnecessary tallness really is excessive, so I completely understand niece’s point. Or maybe I’m just jealous, but probably I’m just tired of having to look up.

      My niece thinks the only height acceptable is her dad’s and her dad is even shorter than me so I wouldn’t say SNG is excessively tall!

    I love your niece and more your husband’s interaction with her. He’s going to make a great dad…

      He’s never interacted with kids before, he says he doesn’t know how to do this. The youngest kid in his whole family (including extended family) is an 18 year old!

      Thank you, he will.. one day.. in the far, far future! ☺

      She’s 5, turning 6 soon but she says she’s 10 and that to her means older than everyone in the family. “I’m bigger than Grandpa!” she says.

        Oh golly, how cute. Like when kids think 5 pennies is way more money than 1 quarter.
