it was bad enough that L's commercial for a telecom gets aired on TV rarer than the previous months, so imagine a worse scenario when one of those once-in-a-blue-moon opportunities descended the planet and i missed L's adorable boobtube appearance. I was safely couched in the car just this lazy Friday when a classmate called me up to ask if I will grace another classmate's weekend party. I had the mobile phone's loudspeaker on, so when L's commercial jingle served as my classmate's sudden background noise, I grew so red that the driver thought I incurred a bodily ache or something. He asked what was wrong, but i only shrugged. At the moment, the car was wheeling along C-5 in order to fetch my friend who waited in Market! Market! My eyes got fixated in a particular billboard, and when the brightly-lit picture loomed in my full view, it was L's telecom ad. His ad's jingle played on and on in my mind, like a chant in a fantasy universe. You lose some, but you also win some.
