Day 2,120. Bright Eyes' First Day of My Life came out of nowhere while I was driving. Someone found a mix CD among my pile of trash in the backseat. Wow, I swear I just cleaned there. Three years ago? So anyway, this CD was in my player. Familiar songs, no big deal. I was navigating Makati Avenue and at the turn to Ayala the opening chords of this godforsaken song wafted. Our song. Wow? It still hit me like a bullet. You know what though? By the time I got to the office, my chest was so light.
