I have been spending 5-10 min daily playing an online word game since 3 years ago. It is an option for me to relax and see the world. 😉 I have built up a team with players from UK, US, Russia, and Philippines.
I decided to temporarily stop playing it since 2 weeks ago, giving break to my brain after busy with my moving and research.
This early morning when I came online, I received an instant greeting from this UK guy. He was worried with my absent (because I did it as a daily routine for the past 3 years 😀 ).
“Hello, how are you doing? Have you finished your book yet? 😊 ”
Oh, I told him I was working on a book! I was so busy and I forgot. 😝
“Hey, sorry for my MIA. 😂 I was busy moving to a city closer to my institute. I used to spend 1 hr 20 min one way to get there. Now it takes me 10 min by walking to get to my lab. 😊 ”
“Institute you say??? You are not mad, are you??? A mad scientist. Haha! 😂A sensible choice indeed. ”
Me: “Haha, you are the second person to claim that I am a mad scientist. I do not deny that 😜 ”
“Mad is genius they say… Well, I say… 😁 ”
“I am the exception, I am solely mad but not genius 😄 ”
“You are so modest.”
“I am so surprised you still remember I told you I was working on a book. It is under review now.”
He was excited: “I have got a good errrr…. memory…. ”
“Good memory, good for you. 😊 Anyway, you still don’t remember my name, don’t you? ”
Haha, that’s his biggest struggle in these years!
“Erm… Lima… Lyn… Princess… Lyna… Lyn Lyn… 😂 ”
Hehe… We spent 15 min on chit chatting instead of gaming before I off to get ready for work and he was off to sleep.
What a wonderful way to start a day, knowing that somewhere, someone cares about you, even he keeps forgetting your name. 😂 😂 😂
