What's so amazing about Grace??!
2.53pm: I get a call from a prospective employer, "We can meet today and discuss the job I was telling you about. How soon do you think you can be in the office?" "Give me an hour," I say, cool as can be. I hang up and sit in daze for a few minutes, "Wooohooooo!!" I wrap up chatting and whatnot and start getting ready.
3.32pm: I call a cab and go downstairs to wait.
3.40pm: Tap, tap, tap my foot. Light a dunhill fine cut, inhale, still waiting.
3.45pm: WTF!! Incompetent cab services, Still waiting as you've probably guessed!!
3.51pm: The cab arrives. I jump in. "Taylors college, abang. Do you know where it is?" "Taylors in Subang Jaya. Okay Lah. No problem," He replies. I put my earphones on and do a quick mental calculation. Good traffic, I'll be there by 4.07pm. Bad traffic I'll be there by 4.20pm. Not too bad. I close my eyes and listen to Norman Brown trying to calm myself down.
4.02pm: My phone rings. "Loco, how far are you?" "I'm sorry, traffic is horrid but I just passed the Sunway toll so I should be there within the next 10 minutes."
4.05pm: The foot starts tap tap tapping again! A slight drizzle begins.
4.09pm: We get there. "This is Taylors Miss. 26RM" I pay quickly and jump out of the cab.
That is the point I stopped looking at my watch. That is also the point, I started looking for Amazing Grace.
To be continued.....
