during our just-friends phase, kim and i often talked about our crushes. but later on, he confided that he only talked about other girls with me to see if i would show even the slightest hint of jealousy. of course, i didn’t pick on that because i was so dense.
anyway, i just remembered that i copied my favorite sms exchanges from kim when i retired my alcatel mobile phone in college (when we were already a couple). because he was my only constant textmate in high school, that phone was practically full of messages from him from when we were just friends. i laughed so hard reading these text messages in my diary.
it was prom season but we don’t have such in our school. so kim had been asking me for days to be his date to their school’s js prom. but i didn’t take his invitation seriously and instead told him maybe he just didn’t have the guts to ask his crush to be his prom date.
my baby is so pikon, haha!
