Today is Apr 1, 2020, also known as April Fools’ Day, on which day people tell jokes and try to fool each other by some brilliant tricks, such as hoax calls, sticking a hilarious label on other’s back without telling him or her, etc. For me, it’s nothing special, and I didn’t realize it’s April Fools’ Day until this afternoon. But then I found it’s a great opportunity to do something incredible.
The thing is that I have a very huge crush on one of my best friends Ania, and due to various reasons, I didn’t even officially confess my love to her. So, our relationship is very subtle & convoluted, kinda like the situations in sitcoms Friends & How I Met Your Mother.
You know, in Friends, Rachel is always the most beloved one by Ross, regardless of what happens. Hilariously, Ross even says Rachel’s name at his wedding with Emily, which suggests how much Ross loves Rachel. There are too many scenes to count, but each of them is phenomenally terrific. In How I Met Your Mother, Ted is kinda another Ross who is passionately devoted to Robbin, a Canadian girl worked in NYC as a news reporter. This sitcom I just stared to watch yesterday, alright, for a whole day. It is really awesome! Exceptional! I was very much touched by Ted’s obsession with Robbin. There are many interesting and impressive things that Ted have done in order to date Robbin, like giving 3 consecutive days of parties only for one meet of Robbin, doing a rain dance for a whole afternoon in the fond hope of keeping Robbin staying home from going a camping trip with her colleague (unbelievably, he makes it), etc. Those are, by Barney’s words, legendary, totally legendary!!
Also, there is one scene that really impressed me, I can’t remember which episode and the complete words, but approximately like this, Barney tells Ted that he and Robbin are never gonna happen (in a way, it extremely likes Joey tells Ross that he and Rachel are never gonna happen, ’cause they are already into dangerous friend zone), Ted says “…But it’s Robbin (Rachel/Ania), the exact one I have dreamed for, the exact one I have a perfect feeling for. And even though it is a mistake, I’ll still wanna make, ’cause it’s Robbin (Rachel/Ania), it’s someone else, someone special that I have the right feeling for.” That is an awesome speech. And that’s also what exactly I wanna say to Ania.
I was afraid to tell Ania how much I love her, ’cause we are friends, and I’m so afraid to lose her if I tell her I’m in love with her. This is kinda like Ross is afraid to loss Rachel. However, today, April 1, is a special day, I can say that with this excuse, and it’s reasonable. :)-
Anyway, I just wanna be straightforward and tell her I love her. Done. Just don’t think, don’t consider the consequence afterward, it would be of ease. Don’t be an emotional-freak any more. All you have to do is to shut down your sanity system, and show her your love and affection from the bottom of heart. Legendary!
