Just 2 nameless people hanging out among the sea of parents waiting for Ari’s winter concert to begin.
I find this moment of being lost in the crowd absolutely refreshing and delightful because it puts things in perspective about who the true stars are in the life of all these people gathered here.
Speaking of concerts, there is a reason this guy is still my all time favorite date for winter concerts. It is simply because to date (pun intended!) he hasn’t missed even one concert of the boys. He will get out of work, drive through traffic like a maniac, walk into a huge concert hall or gymnasium, scan rapidly to see where I am seated and yell on the phone “Yenga di irruku” (which loosely translates to “Where the heck are you?”). Then, he would rush to sit beside me and say “I made it!”.
I know historically women have fallen for and picked a dude who will shower them with gems and goodies.
Damn the gems and the goodies. I can’t take them to my grave anyways.
I will pick this dude all over again simply because he shows up at the right time to watch his boys and take my breath away.
Now, on to listening to Feliz Navidad.
