This conversation happened in English because I speak English with my husband sometimes. We’re both Indonesians.
I told my husband: I don’t have any friends. I wonder why it doesn’t bother me.
My husband: You’re so pathetic. You need to go out more and make friends.
I thought about what he said for a while. Pathetic? And then I told him: I don’t feel pathetic at all. I’m just happy. Partly because I don’t have any friends. It’s so liberating. I don’t have to worry about people’s opinion about me.
My husband: Oh God, you’re so weird.
I wanted to say: Yes, maybe. But you’re weirder because you love me! but he already left.
That day I asked him to buy me a new headset because my old one is broken. He got me a Philips PC headset SHMI900 200,000 rupiah. I love it. It’s huge!
I suspect that my husband makes it his life mission to make me happy. So maybe that’s also why I feel fine without friends. Because I already have him as my best friend.
Actually, this post is initially written just to tell you that I got a new headset to study Korean. ###
