I'd like to run away
But if you didn't come
And find me...
I would die.
-- Shirley Bassey
love. it's a strange little word with a myriad of meanings, isn't it? i'm delighted that my favourite girl cousin is getting married very soon. if i'm looking smug right this minute it is also because i'm very much elated -- i came up with a classy design for the wedding invite. i do love weddings and would wed too, (un)fortunately, mine is a higher calling... for now. i've had two marriage proposals -- the second came from my own best friend. it seemed the whole world knew about us and he was rudolph valentino. i giggle when i think of how crazy it was to be in his arms.
I have loved to the point of madness;
That which is called madness,
That which to me,
Is the only sensible way to love.
-- F. Sagan
there's another guy who wants to be a part of my life. he offered several times to be my "date" at my cousin's wedding, i thought it was very sweet of him. men rarely "invite themselves" to meet the parents but green-flecked brown eyes doesn't mind... at all.
I love thee, I love but thee
With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold
And the stars grow old.
-- William Shakespeare
my younger cousins protested when i turned down the second proposal (they think the world of him). personally, i think i know now whom i love but how do i respond to his affection?
je m'excuse de vous avoir fait attendre.
(my dear, i'm sorry i kept you waiting.)"
