Remember that day I was driving
and showing you around Metro Manila
and because of my incredibly challenged sense of direction we got lost
and I accidentally brought you to a landmark (was it a statue?) three times in a row
because I kept making a wrong turn
and you started to make fun of me
and we both started laughing so hard our sides hurt
then you told me that we should remember that moment
so we can go back to it when we’re sad
because it will cheer us up and make us smile?
I pulled out that happy memory today.
You were right.
