Kap & Me

Love, Ms. Piggy (Don’t Sweat the Little Things)

We have a stack of rechargeable batteries at home. As much as possible Kap “encourages” us to use rechargeable batteries instead of the disposable ones. Mahal daw kasi. I’m not kidding.

I have this pink mini-fan that I take along wherever I go. I’m at at age where I’m peri-menopausing & I sweat a lot. As in profusely, even in an air-conditioned room. So I take my trusty fan with me wherever I go. And because it uses a lot of battery mileage, Kap makes me use the rechargeable ones to save money because I easily use up 2-4 a day especially on extremely hot & humid days.

To be fair, he really makes it a point to charge the batteries regularly for me. He’s thoughtful that way. ;)

A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to a backyard party. I really didn’t feel like going because of my condition. But Kap has been so nice going with me to invites left & right from the KTG that I felt I owed him this. And so I went. With 2 back-up batteries because there was not a single whiff of wind that night of all nights.

Lo & behold, my batteries drained one after the other & I was left with nothing midway. My matted hair was plastered to my head & we couldn’t leave because we just hitched a ride with another couple & they were clearly enjoying the night. I won’t even go on the detail WHY we hitched. I’m sure you already know! @_@

Anyway, I was drenched in sweat, sticky, itchy, and not in the best of moods. Plus, I had my period! So imagine how grumpy I was becoming by the minute. Kap disappeared for a while, and when he came back, he handed me a brown paper bag with a gentle smile. And inside were 2 batteries. Sure, they were not energizer batteries that can keep going all night. :P But they were GOLD eveready batteries, mind you. Which means a bit more expensive than the regular ones. Now you have to KNOW Kap very well to realize that this was a treat! ;))

I was so touched that even though I was grumpy & unpleasant, he still thought of my comfort & bought batteries for me to use. He could have just left me to rot & talked to his friends, but he stayed by my side throughout. He truly is my knight in shining armor, and I fell in love with him all over again. Many times, when I just want to pummel him with my fat fists because of something annoying, he does random acts of kindness to make my anger melt & turn it to love again. <3

What am I driving at? That even at my worst, Kap still loved me. And he still came through for me when I really needed him the most. It may be as small a thing as a battery, but it’s how you know he’ll be there for you for the big things. That you can always count on him. So don’t sweat the little things.
