One of my Ex's is getting married.
You heard that right.
How weird is that... a girl that you've been with for over 2 years in the past and whom you once loved and was heartbroken over is getting married.
She didn't want to tell me though, eventhough we talked a lot online lately.
Instead, she told one of my friends knowing that that friend would definitely come and tell me about it.
I can't blame her though and I hope she never tells me.
I mean how odd is that. It's odd inviting your ex to your wedding and even odder if you're going for your ex's wedding.
Ex-girlfriend: Tim I'm getting married.
Tim: Oh when.....??
Ex-girlfriend: This January.
Tim: Oh Where?
Ex-girlfriend: Oh in this really nice church in Penang but our wedding dinner is going to be at Eastern & Oriental Hotel and all my friends are coming.Tim: Oh.. right.... good for you...
Ex-girlfriend: Uhmm yeah...
Tim: So... uhmm... good stuff.
Ex-girlfriend: Yeah.. uhmm.. hey I would invite you but I know you're really busy.
Tim: No no no it's okay.. it's okay... you don't have to.. I uhmm.. have to take my dog to the vet on that day too.
Ex-girlfriend: Oh I didn't know you have a dog?
Tim: Yeah.. I just got one lately.
Ex-girlfriend: Oh?? What's his name?
Tim: His name? Uhhh.. uhhmmm.. his name is... Puff
Ex-girlfriend: Ohhh cool.. what kind of dog is he?
Tim: Uhmm.. he's a.... dragon dog.
Ex-grlfriend: I never knew there was such a breed.
Tim: Yeah.. uhmm.. me neither.
The awkwardness of not inviting and not wanting to be invited to a wedding of your ex.
Well you gotta give my ex some credit though.
I mean you know how when you go through a painful break-up, it's almost like the beginning of a life-long contest to show each other how much better off you are without the other.
Well she's beaten me silly in this one.
She's getting married! And I'm without a girlfriend in sight and almost certainly going to lose that year-end bet I had with my friends to have a girlfriend by New Year's.
But you know what the funny thing is. The funny thing is how people are so pessimistic about girls getting married relatively early.
I told one of my friends.
Tim: Eh.. you know **** is getting married?
Friend: UH OH!!! Got "Bun in the Oven" hor!!!
Tim: "Bun in the Oven"?
Friend: PREGNANT LAR!!!
Tim: No lar! Cannot be lar... she's on the pill.
Friend: HOW YOU KNOW?!
Tim: I was her ex lar
Friend: Well maybe she forgot to eat leh?
Tim: You can't NOT forget to eat your pill. It's like a habit.
Friend: Well maybe her boyfriend swapped her pills with Sugus without her even knowing.
See how pessimistic people are these days?
If a couple gets married when they're young... why can't it be because they're IN LOVE...... not because one of them has a bun in the oven HUH?!
Ishh... what has the world come to..
I bet in the Red Indian days when Young Dagger goes to the Chief and says
"CHIEF!!! I AM GOING TO MARRY BLUE SWAN!"
The Chief will say
"GOOD FOR YOU YOUNG DAGGER. GOOD THAT YOU HAVE FOUND THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE! I SHALL THANK THE EARTH".
The Chief does not say
"WHAT!?!?! WHY SO CARELESS WAN YOU!??! SHAME SHAME ONLY"
