While visiting at the hospital, Dad gives M2 $20 and tells her, “buy a dress for your first day of class.”
We turn to each other with a puzzled look.
Thinking out loud, “gee, did he mean buy a Sunday dress to wear to class?”
M1 is out spending the day at Manila Ocean Park with her friend Lee. http://www.manilaoceanpark.com/
I receive a text message from her, “I have a photo with a bird! I’ll show it to you later!”
Thinking out loud, “a milestone! She has bird phobia!”
An hour later, another message comes in.
“Mom. We’re going to dive with the sharks. Just remember everything I told you if I die.”
Thinking out loud I recall, “tell dad I love him, I love you and M2, display any photo of me except the one in grade school and I want a cremation.”
I think I have everything covered.
Two hours later I send M1 a message.
“Well, are you alive?”
Thinking out loud, “hmmm, I hope the sharks were not hungry when she decided to go swim with them.”
I’m still waiting for a sign of life.
