I’m really bz…must we fix a particular date?
Erm..but i just want to know when u r free. Next week or the week after? Been a while!
Er..why nt just see hw things flow?
Ok..does tat mean we can meet spontaneously or u r simply not interested in seeing me again?
I don’t understand why some men don’t get it. It is ok if they are 18, not-ok if they’ve been legal for close to 15 years. Either they’re thick-headed or they think they’re god’s gift to women and can’t phantom why women can’t drop everything to date them.
On a more amusing note, a 24-year-old asked me out. I felt like a cougar haha. Still, in J’s terms, at least I know I am still ‘desirable’. Not many years of that left, me thinks, cos it’s time to move on to another stage and..the more I meet, the more I think I know what I want=)
Yesterday, a former colleague whom I met for a quick dinner said the following (more or less in his words):
Honestly I just want to say (bubble above my head [BAMH}: is he going to say something interesting?), thought u had a very nice ass (BAMH: yay..wait a minute…past tense?!) but i noticed ur ass seems fat now (BAMH: darn u).
Your skin..hor (BAMH: what now?!)..is looking good (BAMH: i know=) cos’ i’ve been making an effort this year to be less involved in sun-necessary activities. My skin is smooth and fair without make up! yay!)..but (ears prick up), you’re so pale you look scary. Maybe blusher would make you look better. (BAMH: f***).
To rub it in, his partner nodded in vigorous agreement. Ouch. Cannot be fair and fat meh?! 白白嫩嫩, gettit!?
I’ve watched him grown old and feeble. A solitary figure, bent-over, blind with too much eye-white showing, a small and oddly egg-shaped head peppered grey, always armed with a walking stick, a bag of tissue packets and a friendly presence. Those who grew up in my area must have seen this man at least twice or thrice in their lives.
When i bumped into him again yesterday, I realised how much he aged. And as I bought my usual eight packets from him, 我 深 深感受到岁月果然不饶人.
