Encounter with Giddy Girl

As I was about to leave the office pantry after devouring my enjoyable solo lunch, I ran into a girl who looked so excited, it sparked my curiosity. She asked the lady at the counter where I bought my food about a certain package that was left for her. At first I thought it was just an Avon product she bought from someone but she acted so excited about it, I knew it had to be more than that.

And so, I decided to stay a bit and eavesdrop.

The lady brought out this huge box wrapped in glittery red paper and handed it to the giddy girl. Ohhh, a present! Giddy girl started ripping off the paper and was giggling while doing it. I felt myself gravitate towards her huge present as I can’t stand unopened gifts. Nonchalantly, I asked giddy girl if it was her birthday and was it a present from a friend? Despite her intense enthusiasm over her present, she managed to blurt out a single word that was enough to make me feel as giddy as she felt. – “Monthsary!”, was the word that escaped her lips. I congratulated her and greeted her enthusiastically, “Happy monthsaryyyy!”, as if I was a true blue friend, but deep inside I  felt a twinge of envy. How I wished I also had a huge present to open or perhaps that envy sprung from my desire to have my own “monthsary” to celebrate. I actually wanted to wait for her to finish tearing off the wrapper so I can finally see what’s inside the box but I reminded myself that I don’t even know her. So I walked away, giving her some privacy. I also didn’t want to witness any hugging or kissing just in case her boyfriend planned to make a surprise appearance.

Oh well, Christmas is coming, maybe I’ll get lucky. Hehe!
