this is this week's sunday scribblings.
when first I read this prompt, I was wondering. is it about an old friend, I mean really old. some one with my dad's age or something?
or is it a friend that you already have since long time ago?
to be honest, I'm not some one who is easy to get close to other. and when I do, no guarantee I'll stay close to them forever. I mean, when a friend is away from me, and I meet new people, it is to the new ones I will get close, although still never be too close.
first I want to take 'old' as age. so my oldest friend would be my friend at office. he's old enough to be my father. he's nice and warm, first thing he does when he meets me in the morning, is greet me and shake my hand. he tell jokes, and give me prompts to sing. yeah, I do sing all the time, even some time just humbling. everytime I stop singing, just because I feel bad, or I was thinking hard of something I was working on, he would sing a line or two. and I will sing to the rest. and then he'll say: yes! I made you sing again.
and taking the word 'old' as long time ago, music would be the one. I sing since I can remember things, say it I was 3 or a little bit more or less. this is the only friend I never let go. I don't even think I could live without it.
