In the movie This Means War, Chelsea Handler plays best friend to Reese Witherspoon who, after a major heartbreak, dove back to the dating pool and ended up with two amazing men to choose from. This is the best part of the movie. In a very rare opportunity, a chic flick dished out the realest and truest advice.
Twelve years ago today, he kissed me in their basement, just by the light switch. Vacationing without my best friend and sister Marga was something I was not so eager to do, but it lead me here today, living in the same house where that basement was.
Back then, all our pictures looked like we were the only two people in New Jersey. I don’t think I’ve ever had someone look at me the way he did. I was all he saw. And my eyes never left him.
It has been exactly 12 years. I bet no one saw this coming, not even him.
I have spent so much time revering poets and lyricists with their fantastic works of art and music, but today, I have to give it to fate and Le Mari because without him believing that we are destined to be together, I won’t believe it too.
It has been such a rollercoaster ride since he came back in my life. He came at a time when everything was at its wrong place, and I was losing faith. He helped me regain it, and I couldn’t be more thankful. Some may say that is an exaggeration, but only he and I would really know the truth of the matter.
And I’m so grateful that after all these years, we now have more pictures together. Better, we have family and friends with us too.
Twelve years. Who would’ve thought?
I love you, Allan. <3
