l Note Me
Yesterday was filled with tears. Some were tears of frustration and helplessness, shed as mom coached me through the depths of my computer. Some were tears of exhaustion, shed just because I didn't have the energy to hold them back. Some were tears of relief, shed when I realized that my father had committed himself to 6 hours of driving, just to see me. And some were tears of joy, shed when I delighted in music my dad brought with him.
All of these tears happened and were signs of the emotional turmoil that was yesterday. But I do not consider yesterday to have been a bad day.
I got to see my dad, hug him and eat sushi with him. I got to introduce him to some of my friends and impress him with how geeky they were.
And I made a new friend in the Sushi restaurant.
A little boy, no more that 5, had put the wooden chopsticks in his mouth and was jutting out his chin while humming loudly. He would direct this at various members of his family and, when he saw me watching, he would direct this at me. When I waved back, he giggled and did the rounds again. On impulse I put my own chopsticks in my mouth and mimicked him (minus the noise).
He thought this was the coolest thing since ever and laughed. This happened twice more, bringing smiles to both his family and mine.
This experience has stuck with me because, amid all the tears and grown-up issues, I let my inner child out just for a short moment. The delighted response given by everyone that night boosted me in a way that I wouldn't have found elsewhere. Well, not in that concentrated state.
So today is a day of recuperation for me, and a day where I can think on the happy moments of yesterday instead of the sad.
