One Small Thing..

Today..I was going back to the office after I had my lunch break. The weather was pretty much HOT here in Jeddah as it reached 48ºC in the afternoon. I had that horrible headache and I wasn't at the working mood at all..in a traffic light I saw a bus of my old school. Excitedly I stepped a little to see the driver of the bus..and there I was shocked!! it's him!! 3AM HASANEEN!!!!

18 years ago I was playing with some friends at our school playground..somehow I felt and I broke my hand. Of course I was crying and all that, it really hurt. A teacher called the school's driver to take me to the hospital. It was 3am hasaneen lol he took me to the hospital and I remember how he used to tell me don't cry son..you are gonna be just fine..you are a big guy now! stop crying :P

When I saw him today..I got memories of my school, friends and my teachers. It's amazing that one small thing can bring all that..when I was next to the bus, I looked at him with a big smile on my face..he saw me but he didn't recognize me of course.

I want to be a kid again..


    That is so sweet,, we always have this thing for our schools, I still go visit my high school till now. it is -as you said- triggers sweet memories..
