I was waiting in line to check out at some supermarket. Accidentally, I saw this particular thing that caught my attention. It was a condom. Durex. Strawberry flavor. Well, I know condom is a common thing. Even the strawberry flavor can’t be count as uncommon as well. It’s just suddenly my locked-deep-down memory came into the light. The lock just came undone and let the box opened.
It was memory from 2 years ago. One day, I told him that I wanted to see funny and unusual condoms. Not the ordinary one. And I don’t wanna buy it myself, bcos it will be too embarrassing for me. He just laugh and say nothing else.
Few days later, he brought home something in a plastic bag and handed it over to me.
“Here you go.” Throwing the plastic bag to me.
I caught it and ask him, “What is this?”
He grab the towel and went to the bathroom without answering my question first.
I decided to open the plastic bag and I found 2 box of condom inside. I can’t seem to recall the brand but one box contains 8 condoms with 4 different type. 2 hot, 2 cold, 2 flavored, and 2 textured. Even more, he also got me the glow in the dark type!!! I’ve been super curious about that one!
I feel like a kid that just got new toys! I know how silly this sounds to get so excited over condoms. But for me it really was exciting! I’ve been wanting to see and touch that kind of condoms for a long time (mainly because I was curious as in how those condoms feels and look like), but never had the courage to buy it myself. And telling him that I wanted it also something that I never asked anyone else before as well. He was the first and I thought he won’t get it. Unexpectedly, he did get some for me.
I was so engrossed checking those condoms one by one and didn’t realize that he already finished his shower and looking at me from the door. He was smiling, laughing a bit, “Are you really that happy just because I got you those condom?”.
I was looking at him, smiling broadly, and nod, “Very! Thanks!”.
After that, well, I think you guys could guess the rest of the story already… 😉
After remembering that bittersweet memory, I can’t help but smile.. Close the box again and put it back to where it belong. The deepest part of my heart..
