I MISSED THE WORLD CUP FINAL!!!!
Yes, I did! Can you believe it? Me??!!
I overslept and got up at 5:10am when EVERYTHING was over! I had gone to bed at 11pm setting the alarm at 1:50am but somhow it didn't go off..
I sms-ed some replies to friends saying that I wanna kill myself..and that was how I felt. I was screaming and throwing tantrum at myself.. In rage, I threw my alarm clock away!!
My dad, who just managed to wake up like 10 mins before me, watched the last few commenting actions on tv and knew the results. He didnt want to to tell me but I knew my sms would have told me anyway.. and I just couldn't stand the suspence.
I found who was the winner and I was happier a little. Just a little.
So as consolation and thank God for Astro, I managed to watch the replay at 6:30am all the way through to 9am when Italy, MY ITALIA - lifeted the cup in jubiliation!!
It was quite an amazing match, especially what happened to Zidane - again my dad had told me that was to happen already..
But heck!! I still couldn't believe I could sleep through the Final! The MOST IMPORTANT match of the whole World Cup when I managed to wake up for so many of the earlier matches! This is unforgivable. Too incredible as well..
Again, I blame it on the real full stomach and a lousy alarm clock.. and my own stupiditiy I guess
Dad joked and said that my World Cup (watching) areer ended the same way as Zidane - exit in shame..
How apt huh? and I felt as if I could identify with that poor soul though I was not backing his team.
update: I realised it's my own fault as I forgot to click the on button of the alarm clock. I have just retrieved my poor old alarm clock from the bin. sigh...
