Memories of a friendship

There aren't that many people who

  • offered their unconditional support and encouragement. Always.

  • would run out to the mall every time you had a conference to go to and buy you a new outfit to wear for it.

  • would lend you the keys to their car before you could even ask.

  • would cook and bring you food when you were sick.

  • would trouble-shoot your experiments for you over a cup of chai

  • you could call to your messy apartment in the middle of the night to help you find your passport since you need to catch an international flight in a few hours

  • would proceed to find your passport for you and drive you to the airport

  • knew what you liked, always made sure you got it

  • understood you, stood by you and goaded you on

  • got all your jokes and laughed with you

  • would drive 2 hours to get you from the airport at 3 am

  • indulged in you and your impulsiveness

And there aren't that many times in life you meet a single person capable of being and doing all of the above and more!

The sad part is never being able to get a chance to say thanks.. or sorry.

I continue to remain optimistic, and hope dearly for that chance.
