If only I'm a baker.
This is a story of the boy and the oreo cheesecake. The boy who knows all (read: most) of my secrets. The boy whom I've known for nearly 10 years yet I still feel I barely know him. The boy who likes to make fun of me: In 2005, he told me I wrote like a bapok. (Do I still write like a bapok?) The boy who still makes fun of me.
He's the boy who came all the way down to school on a Saturday afternoon for floorball coz he knows if he doesnt tag along, I'll most probably not go even though I really really want to - he knows how crazy I am about floorball and why. He's also the boy whom I sometimes wish was a girl - that way, I could ask her out for movies and stuffs. Haha! I am so kidding.
For some weird reason, the boy have touched my heart. SO much that Im actually moved to bake him a cheesecake. But I'm no baker. And I cant stand the smell of cheese. But even if I do, I wouldnt know how a cheesecake is supposed to taste like coz Ive never eaten a cheesecake. I hate cheese. And you know that.
So I'll do what I do best and wish I were a baker, so that I could bake you an oreo cheesecake! Happy Birthday dear friend. May our other friend bake you a real oreo cheesecake some day. :D
