So the other day.. a friend wondered how I could stand Papah being away so often?
I droned away the well rehearsed lines in a robotic mode - i-am-used-to-it. it's-due-to-unavoidable-circumstances-that-he-has-to-travel. i-have-long-accepted- and-understood-his nature-of-work.
I reckon it was a little bit like answering one of the judges questions in a beauty pageant (for my level, it has to be at least Ms. World...).
You know.. answering the right way like this -
What would you wish for for Christmas?
I would like WORLD PEACE! *flashes sparkly smile*
*judges nod and audience clap*
I wasn't lying when I answered my friend's question, you know. What I said was partially true. Not the entire truth cos there are times that I didn't want to be understanding. There are times that I sit on bed and go wawawawawa, why is papah going again? But most of the time I am subdued in manner. Why did I skip the wawaawawawa part when answering my friend's question?
I donch know!
Maybe I am carved out to be a Beauty Queen - diplomatic, predictable, unoriginal (like sinkar's Dvds) and boring to the core?
Either that or I am just a bloody liar.
And a hypocrite.
Anyways.. for conversation sake, I reiterated the topic to Papah - what my friend asked, and what I have answered.
He nodded a bit, with his fingers scratching his protruding chin and replied, "Good girl.."
WUT?? Gud girl?? You gotta be kidding me. That's not in your script. Check and read your next line again, papah.
Movie title: What A Good Wife
Scene 1/take 2
Mom : So I told her, that I am used to it. Not that you want to travel all the time. If you could, you would want to stay with us. I still love you..
Papah : Gee, wife. You are a gem. What would I do without you? Let's go get you another new bag.
Teehee..humour. What do I do without it?
