It happened on weekend. I was eating nasi kerabu with my parents at a Kelantanese restaurant when I heard a shriek of laughter behind me. Ayah choked on his drinks. Ibu frowned. I asked why.
"Tuuuuu...." I followed ayah's lips direction.
A girl slapping a boy's shoulder while laughing hysterically. I smiled. Yup, elderly won't like this kind of situation in front of them. Honestly, if they know that I have done that a couple of times when I was young, they might strangle me!
But then again I rarely slap a man's shoulder. Why? I value shoulders. People carry burdens and responsibilities mostly using their shoulders.
Shoulders make people look stable.
Shoulders make people look normal.
Shoulders make men look tough.
Shoulders make women look slim (that explains why I don't look slim! Hehehe)
Shoulders make children look like school children. (with their school bags, of course)
However, I need to admit that I can't control my own laughter. Someone says something and my voice cracked high pitched across Petronas Twin Tower! I'm not sure why I just can't control myself. I can't laugh in a lady-like manner and most of the time it's embarassing and it's hard!
It's embarassing because people will start looking at you when you laugh.And it's hard because the harder you don't want to laugh, the harder you will have to control yourself.
Talk about chubby cheeks pain.
And...talk about heart pain.
When Kurina had this words flew out of her mouth,
"Tengok I. You know, Farid cakap, apalah Sha tu...gelak kuat-kuat. Cuba contohi Kurina, ayu aje."
I felt like vomitting. The lady was talking high of herself.
Somehow, I wanted to say this,
"Taknaklah contohi Kurina. At least Sha punya masalah, gelak kuat je. Maybe sebab tu tak cukup ayu untuk jatuh hati pada setiap lelaki yang melintas kat depan dia."
or colloquial speaking,
"Aku gelak besar, tapi aku tak ikut mana-mana jantan beb!!!"
But then again, folks, maybe that is my problem. Not ayu enough to attract any Tom, Dick or Harry. Maybe Farid was right.
But selling cheap should not be the practice kan?
Chubby cheeks pain should not get in my way.
Maybe Sha needs to change to ayu type a bit (which means she is not being herself lah!):P
