It was past midnight when I left to office that morning. When I’m this busy, a lot of things become instant to me. For instance, I’ve had instant teh tarik, instant mushroom soup and instant grossness. Some other things should be made instant too, like:
• instant bath when you’re too tired to turn on the shower
• instant load as opposed to downloading
• instant sleep when your mind is too awake at 4am
• instant happiness whenever
Yet some things that used to be instant don’t always remain. And somethings are better when you wait, like coffee from the press and relationships and film processing.
