The other day, at 3.14pm ( I knew cos I looked at the clock), I was feeling slightly woozy. Nah, I wasn't inebriated. It was the time of the month when I needed more sleep than usual.
But Gooly was due to be home in 20 minutes. Dang! I needed to sleep so much. I plopped down on my pillow, and stared out the grill-less window.
.. opening and shutting my eyes. Hoping to sleep, afraid to sleep. Want to sleep, cannot sleep (in case I don't wake in time to bring Gooly up from the lobby.)
And so I was delirious. You know the feeling? Between here and there? Neither here nor there? Antara Anyir dan Jakarta? Asleep vs. awake?
Here's the thing - when I closed my eyes, I heard things. Aiyarr..not spooky stuff lah. Things like, the rain pitter pattering. Things like the fountain splashing. Birds chirping (always a sign that the rain is about to stop). And..hoi! Chain saw sound. Ops.. sorry. That was my snore.
And I woke. And my eyes took over the senses. I saw rain patterns on my windown pane, dark clouds clearing, green leaves atop of trees, birds flying to North Pole (how the heck I know where they were going jek?)
And I smiled and the tune came -I got a feeling.. it's gonna be a good good day~ (albeit 6 hours late. It should come in the morning)
Have you tried this therapy? Just relax.. inhale, exhale (in other words, snore like me), listen and watch Mother Nature. Just for a few minutes. And bingo! You will have I got a feeling.. it's gonna be a good good day~ moment too.
Try it! No time? Sorry-lorr, I cannot help you with that.
Note: Do you like that song? And yes, this therapy may not work for the grumpiest people on the face of the earth. By that, I mean YOU! :P
