My mom used to tell me when I was a kid that thank you note is important. To let people know that you're thankful, and appreciate their efforts. As I grow older, I'm so used on writing thank you notes with the same template on every note. But I, or we, tend to forget to write one for those who cope with our lives. So I wrote this one is for you.
Thank you for letting me crash in your place when I was far from sober, almost on every Friday nights. You literally picked me up when I'm down. On the grown.
Thank you for staying up with me until 5 even when you got a big meeting at 8 in the morning. Because you know how much I hate sleeping, but I'll be the bitchiest ***** if you try to wake me up.
Thank you for bringing me a bouquet of fake flowers instead of the real one. You sure know me way too well to know that I can't keep real flowers alive. Or cactus, or fishes, or my phone's battery. Yea, my phone's battery *****. But you trust me to keep what we have, alive. And lasts as long as it possibly could.
Thank you for making every queue line less boring with all your dad jokes, they made me think that you're a qualified good father to your future kids. Or maybe ours. But I hate children and you love them, as much as I hate karaoke and as much as you love it. But gosh, you made me think of adopting.
We are nothing but night and day. A thunderstorm and a rainbow. A cactus and a peony. A manageable chaos and a managed you. And yet we compliment each other like peanut butter and pickle on a sandwich. Sure, it's one of the weirdest combination but somehow it goes surprisingly fine.
I swear I'm not going to make this cheesy but if it was, well, ****. I know this is not what you imagine to be with me in the first place when you slipped into my life. But I thank you, for deciding to stay.
