Not For Non-Sappy Readers

Okay, here’s a good thing or two about not having great expectations. 1. You won’t be disappointed since… Well, since you don’t expect anything. Jadi ngga akan kecewa juga kalo sampe ngga dapet. 2. Sometimes, for some weird cosmic reasons, you get what you'd like to expect while in reality, you didn't expect it. Begitu dapet, senengnya ribuan kali lipet (get it? :D). For me, that ‘sometimes’ was today.

My day started normal. Sleepy, but that’s how I always am before 6PM :p Trus pada saat-saat terakhir sebelum turun dari mobil, something pissed me off. I got my socks wet :( Saking keselnya sampe ngelamun di lift & hampir kebawa ke lantai 27. Begitu nyampe di meja, ada ‘bingkisan’ Valentine yang yummy dari Keke. Lasagna-nya PastiPasta yang pastinya lezat seharga mulai dari Rp 25rb (Keren ngga colonganku, Ke? ;p)! I was minding my own business sampe jam 14.30an. Tiba-tiba Conny & Devi dateng ke mejaku dengan senyuman yang oddly lebar. Trus mereka teriak sambil meluk & cipika-cipiki “Frikaaaa! Happy Valentine’s Day yaaa!” What the…

Man… I would love to see my face on that particular seconds…

Aku curiga setengah mati pas mereka ngasih 2 kotak kado yang lumayan besar & panjang. Each beautifully wrapped with red & pink ribbons. Tante-tante itu ketawa-ketawa & ninggalin aku sendirian. Sumpah mati aku masih curiga setengah mati. Aku pikir mereka ngerjain aku (since aku suka gangguin Conny :D) I thought kotak-kotak itu a lesbian-thing kind of a revenge :D Until I saw a white envelope with “FARIKA” on it, in a very familiar writing…


“Wishing you the glistening things, moonbeams, starlight and fireflies wings.
Hope our love last forever.”

I didn’t need to read the name :)

Well… This was surely one of the beauty for not having any great expectations. I stopped expecting romantic surprises from my husband looong time ago :D Bukannya dia ngga pernah ngasih surprises sama sekali. But CHOCOLATES?? PINK ROSES?? RED RIBBONS?? Come on!! :D The only time dia pernah ngasih mawar tuh juga karena metik di kebun nyokapnya :p & yang paling aneh lagi adalah it’s Valentine’s Day! He was never into Valentines. Selama 10 taun kita bareng, dia ngga pernah giving me something extra special on Valentine’s Day coz he was NEVER into it. Unlike me & he knows it…

Sekarang, di saat aku lagi belajar untuk sabar & ikhlas dalam segala keadaan (sampe beli buku judulnya SABAR & BAHAGIA which is btw very highly recommended), di saat aku lagi belajar untuk meresapi kalimat “sabar menghadapi pasangan kita” (…yang ngga pernah romantis :p), I got… THIS!!!

Well, I must say, not a bad twist, God… Not bad at all… :)
Honey, you really are so amazingly easy to love :*

And to you all, Happy Valentine’s Daaay!!! XOXO
