An old friend called me yesterday. We’ve known each other since we were sixteen. I can't remember how we became friends exactlt as we went to different schools. Me in one of those schools where my seniors would blow up toilets just for the fun of it and being chased by one of the teachers in the midst of cutting school is a norm. He, on the other hand, went to one of those preppy institutions, where they wore preppy white shirts with preppy white trousers and preppy black shiny shoes. A preppy boy in a preppy school, with predictable flying colors exam results with of course a predictable future in the line engineering. Everything about him is predictably predictable. But his preppiness and my gangsta-paradise of a school background did not stop us from being friends.
So yes, he called yesterday. Which was alse predictable. Only the conversation was not so predictable which caught me off-guard.
Preppy boy : Have you updated your blog?
Cinta : No, not yet. I don’t know what to write about.
Preppy boy : It has been a while right?
Cinta : Errr....yes
Preppy boy : You should just announce its death. Shut it down.
Cinta is rendered speechless on the unpredictibility of his line of thought.
