Things that happened today reminded me very much of you. This morning, there was this new Akon song in the radio. Akon. Remember our chat one Saturday night?
O: Sigh… so upset right now.
M: What happened?
O: I dunno. But I know I don’t feel happy right now.
M: How come? Come tell me…
O: I don’t even know why I’m not happy. Hmm… Feel like listening to sad songs.
O: What sad songs do you listen to when you’re sad?
M: Huh? I can’t listen to sad songs when I am sad. Need to listen to cheerful songs.
O: Such as?
M: Go listen to Akon songs. His songs makes me cheerful.
O: Like this one? *playing Mr. Lonely on his iTunes*
M: No, not that one. Other songs…
Did you know why I was not happy that night? Deep down inside I missed you so much, and would like to see you. But I didn’t get the chance to. And I was too proud to admit that to you.
Anyhow, I tried listening to Akon’s songs at work today. It didn’t help much. It made me miss you even more. That day when I dedicated my singing of “Right Now (Na Na Na)” to you, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Subconsciously, I have associated anything Akon to you.
