A friend comes home unnoticed. Her teenage son is busy with his mobile legend while her daughter doesn’t even know she’s home. In jest, I told her “Get a puppy, or dogs. At least you’ll be comforted that there is someone who is always happy to see you.”
I don’t know why I said that. I’m too insensitive I guess. Truthfully, no matter what, there will always be someone who will need you, love you, or want you. It doesn’t matter in what order. And as time goes by, every passing year, the order changes, for humans I think.
I just can’t think of a right graphic for that quote, so I used my dogs. After all, there is no better way to express unconditional love than citing a dog’s love. Well, just next to my mom’s love of course. Hey, I’m not saying my dogs are at par with her. Neither am I implying that I give more time to my dogs than her. And I know I’m guilty because I always give my dogs a treat every time I arrived home. My mom seldom receive anything from me when I see her. Inspite of that, I know she will always be someone who is happy to see me (just like them too) 🙂
The Mud Pie Mojo stirs some memories when we drop by in an ice cream shop named Coldstone. Yes, it is cold but even with a heart of stone, glancing at their signature creations, suddenly I remember my first lick and that unforgettable obsession. The banana flavored ice cream with chocolate chips, reminding me of that devotion and its rendezvous illusion.
Somehow life’s memories replicate my ice cream fantasies. So I lick it slow then lick it fast….because I know it might not last.
