Bumped into a friend in Melbourne Central just as I was helping myself to the original glaze doughnuts I bought in Krispy Kreme minutes before. Well... more like a friend of a friend but I think it's safe to say that we're friends now all right =)
Anyway,I offered her some in which she graciously accepted one. The next thing I know, I was having the best conversation I had in about a week or so.
As much as I was hoping to avoid the topic though, it came up anyway.
Here we go. Not again.
I mean, telling it is no biggie but having people question my choice was another thing.
"Oh my god,FINALLY," she said with a cheerful smile.
I shot a (hopefully) honest smile back, and grin sheepishly.
"Tell me about it. How did it happen, who is it and all that."
Honestly, I hate explaining those kind of things - what more for the umpteenth time but I did my best to answer in a brief few minutes.
We then spoke for a further 20 minutes or so and you know what?
I'm really glad that I bumped into her and for the conversation itself.
Sometimes it's easier (and perhaps healthier) to have a conversation with a stranger (well,she obviously wasn't one but you know what I mean) than to have it with someone really close to you. I don't know...I think the objectivity helps,and the fact that they don't know you too well makes it more enlightening and less judgemental from both mine and her part. It's always interesting to a get a fresh new perspective and it amuses me how things intertwined - turned out we both were on the same wavelength and on the same boat (wherever that is...LOL) =p
