While waiting for the film to show, I had decided to proceed to WOOF, it is where gaming machines (I am not sure with the term. You see, I have a shallow swimming pool of words) wait for your hand to roughly maneuver its joystick, it is the haven of adults with childish hearts.
On the other hand, my going there is apparently not to play. I have long forgotten the joyous moments that those machines could bring. I am more into computer games. After all, ours is the computer era. However, Steve Jobs even said that we are now in the post-computer era. Enough of that nonsense.
Others went for shoot the ball. Some went for the hammer the head. A few tried their singing skills in the videoke rooms. But when I saw the angry birds (cheap stuff toys) inside that machine I knew that I need to have one.
Paulo Coelho said that when you want something and if it meant happiness for you and the people you love, the universe – the stars, the sun, the moon, the trees, the birds, the air, the flowers and even the little ants – they will all unify to help you. So when I tried my luck for the first time and failed, I knew that I need to try it once more. I failed for the second time though. But I had a feeling, a good hunch, that I would be able to get it so soon.
The third time I threw a coin in the slot, she was on my mind. And if I am going to get that angry bird, I am going to give it to her. My intention was good. And the universe did help me. I got the Angry Bird, the green pig oink oink actually.
