So he said (6)

- We need to talk.
- Yes, we do.
- Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
- I think so...
- Are we both ready to say good-bye?
- A good-bye of the loving heart? yes. A good-bye from my friend? I don't know if I want to.
- I don't want to say good-bye to my friend either.
- See you soon, but not too soon?
- Yes
- I'll miss you... 
- Me too.
- Don't hate me. 
- Never

It's been a couple of months, and everything's a-ok.
So it's true, you live, you learn.
The heart knows what it wants, your scars are battle wounds that make you stronger.

So he said... (5)

- So... how do you feel?
- Empty inside
- Funny... ha... ha... you just had surgery. HOW DO YOU FEEL?
- Can't talk, everything hurts.
- Sleep baby girl.


- Would you call yourself a "cancer survivor"?
- That'd be too much, and an insult to real cancer survivors.
- If you had to label yourself, what would it be?
- Bullet-dodger?

- Sounds cool
- I was thinking Angelina Jolie "colombian version" but maybe that'd be too much.
- You're right... the "air bunnies" gave it away.

Gurl talk

So... this just happened:

Her: Guuuuuurl! my husband has just been named DEAN!!
Me: I knooooooow gurl! congrats! should I call you 'First Lady' now?
Her: Haha... You know it gurl!
Me: Huge responsiblity, huh?
Her: That's what they said once he accepted: it's the second most honorable title at the University, good name BUT with an incredibly huge work load, extra long hours, same paycheck, 10 scheduled meetings per week, giving up his research projects... how lucky are we?
Me: I'm pretty sure the other person proposed by the Chair of Directors and the University President is truly happy your guy won.
Her: Lucky bastard. I'll be sure to thank him when, if I ever meet him.
Me: In that case... you're welcome?
Her: ...
Me: ...
Her: I never meant the "bastard" part. I know I love you gurl.
Me: I know gurl.


Yeah, I was first runner-up for Dean.
Yeah, I was offered the position two years ago.

And I said "It'll be an honor, but not yet... I'll let you know when".
And they said: "Ok".
