My childhood friend, Dodai, is home!!!!
I have not seen her in almost 30 years!
And yet..... It was as though the last time we talked to each other was just yesterday.
Eileen sent me a message last week that she was going to bring a surprise to my house but I was out. I told her to leave the "surprise" with Hermie.
But then she said it would be better if I am home.
She texted me again today if she can drop by the house after lunch, so I said, OK!
I came from the supermarket and bought ingredients for cookies that I was going to serve to Eileen.
I started baking already when I suddenly remembered that Dodai messaged me a few weeks ago to ask for Eileen's address. I put two and two together.
Then it suddenly dawned on me: Dodai is my surprise!
Lo and Behold! Eileen brought my surprise to the house!
I cannot explain how happy I am to see my childhood friend again.
I remember when I was in Gradeschool, during lunch break, we all had gate passes because we live near the school.
Do you know that I would tag along and just go to their house and eat lunch!?!?
I do not think I ever asked permission if I could go home with them.
My usual "victims" were Mia, Josephine, Eileen and Dodai!
I am so glad you are back home, Dodai! Even if it is just for a few years!
And I also love the fact that we live in the same Barangay!
Thank you, Dodai for the cupcakes!
I shared it with my niece and nephew but I ate the icing of one of the cupcakes!
Thank you, Eileen for my wonderful surprise!
