I actually prefer this to Roxette’s original.

“I must learn to love the fool in me–the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool.” — Theodore I. Rubin, MD

Old friends October 28, 2011

Old friends

There’s something very comforting about being in the presence of old friends who knew you since you were 7. We chow down good hawker grub at a humid and poorly ventilated food court then we proceed to hunt down a cafe for desserts – chocolate flavoured, specifically. We finally settle on Laurent Bernard @ Portsdown Road. It’s the same cafe we’d visited in February. This time, we ordered something different. The souffle was slightly disappointing but the company certainly wasn’t.

I give thanks.
