ABC Wednesday - 'Q' is for Queue



We were in a queue to pay the toll at the Sprint Highway in Petaling Jaya. It is common of highways in Klang Valley where drivers are required to pay toll to use them. There are several lanes for drivers to pay the toll. One can either choose to pay by Cash (in Malay language, Tunai), or either through the prepaid card mode, Touch n Go, or if you have a detector device with your Touch n Go card slot in, you can use the Smart Tag lane (which most of the time has no queue!).

I would like to dedicate this song by Alanis Morissette, "Everything" to my dear Mom. I hardly show my appreciation to you, Mom, I want to thank you for standing by me all the time even though I can sometimes be a rebellious, stubborn child that is hard to handle. Love you always!



Everything
=========

I can be an asshole of the grandest kind
I can withhold like it's going out of style
I can be the moodiest baby and you've never met anyone
Who is as negative as I am sometimes

I am the wisest woman you've ever met.
I am the kindest soul with whom you've connected.
I have the bravest heart that you've ever seen
And you've never met anyone
Who's as positive as I am sometimes.

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here

I blame everyone else, not my own partaking
My passive-aggressiveness can be devastating
I'm terrified and mistrusting
And you've never met anyone as,
As closed down as I am sometimes.

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here

What I resist, persists, and speaks louder than I know
What I resist, you love, no matter how low or high I go

I'm the funniest woman that you've ever known
I'm the dullest woman that you've ever known
I'm the most gorgeous woman that you've ever known
And you've never met anyone
Who is as everything as I am sometimes

You see everything (you see everything), you see every part (you see every part )
You see all my light (you see all my light) and you love my dark (and you love my dark )
You dig everything (you dig everything) of which I'm ashamed (of which I'm ashamed)
There's not anything (there's not anything) to which you can't relate (to which you can't relate)
And you're still here

(You see everything, you see every part)
And you're still here
(You see all my light and you love my dark)
And you're still here
(You dig everything of which I'm ashamed)
(There's not anything to which you can't relate)
And you're still here...

I've just read the song/poem that you posted, but cannot listen to it yet, since I am at work. It made tears come to my eyes, since my husband passed away nearly three months ago, and he was (and still is) everything to me. These words are so meaningful to me.

Nice shot of an everyday nuisance. We have the same concept here, just with the SmartTag being called EZPass. It took me a while to understand that this is supposed to be pronounced "EasyPass"...

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
