An Open Birthday Letter for Miss Toni Rose “Nise” Romero
While eveyone is trying to be the first to greet you on your special day, here I am actually hoping that I am the last because you know what they say about the last, they are usually the best. (Laughs!)
But seriously Toni, kidding aside, giving you something for your birthday could’ve been easier for me. I could have just buy you something and present it as a gift. But I did not. Simply because I think I know you better than that. For the past few months, I’ve come to notice how non-materialistic you are. You are not easily lured with material possesions unlike me. Haha.
That is why I am collecting my best efforts to make this letter to let you know how much I appreciate you as a person and as my new friend.
Nise, I really find you beautiful inside and out. You are the type of girl who knows she is beautiful but does not spend all of her waking hours in front of the mirror. I notice how you shyly look down and blush as admiring eyes are darted towards you. You are confident with your charm but never ever conceited nor boastful. J
I find you very generous. Someone who is never hesitant to share whatever she has to others. You are also polite but never untrue. I admire you because you stick with your values and you are not easily swayed. I am a witness on how much you love your family especially your niece. J
You can also be crazy fun. Whenever I am with you there’s no dull moment. You make me feel like a kid again even though we’re already in college. But no fuss, we look like kids naman eh with our 4’11 height. Haha. I couldn’t forget the day we bought the whole brood of rubber duckies at the mall just because we were already starting to get bored. We even named the mother duckie after our mothers. And on that same day, we went inside the grocery and started picking up goods and end up not paying them. Haha. I know there’s no point recaping those happenings but I just want to let you know that that day is one of my craziest days ever.
Thank you for the good times and for the good times to come. J
Thank you also for being very patient with me. Thank you for painstakingly listening over my nonsense stories and politely laughing over my corny pucnhlines. Thank you because you patiently take my picture using Vince’s cam when I ask you to do so. Haha. You never get mad at me whenever I am being demanding or annoying or both. So far, never pa. I am looking forward for the day you’ll really be pissed with me. Haha. But, really thank you. Very rare people can survive my annoyance. J
Thank you beacuse I can feel your sincerity towards me. Am I too conceited saying that? Haha.
Just really, THANK YOU.
I only wish you nothing but the best and your heart’s desires because you deserve it.
I love you. Mwah!
Your annoying but fabulous friend,
