After 20+ years ... I'm spilling it all out ...

Mama’s Losin’ It
I'm going for 
Prompt# 4 You stole WHAT!?! Spill it!

My sister, Ayyen, is 13 years older than me. I think she disliked me because she could have been the youngest had I not been born. So I ... uuummmm ...  kinda .... sort of ....  disliked her, too.  When I was growing I was always  envious of her stuff. Well,  I was in elementary and she was in college, so she had more access to "cool" stuff and  she also had this special ability of turning felt papers into really artistic letters and shapes. I wanted everything she has (I think ... ).   

She had this Garfield stationery that I really liked. As far as I can remember it looked like this:

And it's bigger than usual stationeries that time. I believe I asked it from her but she said, "NO!" So I stole it. At first,  I was so nervous I'd get caught, but when no one asked nor scolded me, I felt like the ultimate high-skilled thief. I showed it off at school and I ended up selling it to a classmate (hehehe). Now, I realized she might have known it all along but didn't question me. (Why???)

But now after 20+ years ... 

I'm confessing ....

(to my sister ....  if you're reading this, 
which I hope you would 'coz I'm posting its link on  your FB wall!!!)

I'm sorry I stole your Garfield stationery.

I'm sorry I stole some of your crisp 5, 10 and 20 peso bills.
(oopppss, was that yours or Ate Wilma's?????)

I'm sorry I might have stolen other stuff from you but I can't really remember.

I'm sorry I might have done other bad things ... worse than just stealing your stuff.

I'm sorry I'm 20+ years too late ...

ask a psychic

If I had an opportunity to get any question answered by a really credible psychic, I would ask :

 Is 12/21/2012 really the end of the world?

After the movie 2012 and the recent tragedies happening, many are afraid of 12212012 .  Many are starting to believe that it's doomsday. It's based on some Mayan calendar or some numerology thingy. But for me 12212012 is a very special day . It will be my daughter's 6th birthday.  I don't want to sound selfish but why ... among all the dates possible and available ... why would they think the world would end on 12212012.  

Four years ago, on December 21, I was blessed with a tiny princess. My life was changed that day so for four years now, I had made 1221 extra special for that princess. I can't imagine how devastated my princess would be if during her birthday party, the ground is shaking and breaking and asteroids are approaching .

I hope the psychic answers "no" to my question.  Maybe there's a wonderful life waiting for us beyond this world but this world is so beautiful to be destroyed. I want my daughter to enjoy the beauty of life here on Earth way beyond just 6 years. 

This is the princess showing that she just turned 4.
In 2012, I want her to be able to show everyone that she turned 6!

A Simple Taste of Happiness

I saw this coke happiness truck video a few days ago. It's a coke truck that gives out bottles of coke, flowers and some other stuff when you push the big red button. The concept was simple, the stuff they gave away were not that grand, but it made the people who got something and the people around happy. It made a huge impact on viewers like me. Viewing it made me really happy!

Maybe this was created for advertising and marketing purposes, but this was more than just selling coke. It shows that sharing happiness is easy. It shows that the simplest things can make us happy.
              the extra sweet smile of the woman who got a rose .....
              the twinkle in the boy's eyes when he saw the robot .....
              the laughter of the man who got about 6 bottles .....
              the way the woman pulled and hugged the teddy bear ....

These simple reactions made me click the play button over and over.

 If everyone shares a tiny bit of happiness, our world would be extra wonderful. During this time of wars, tragedies and calamities, a simple taste of happiness is all need.
